This book is indeed fierce, unrelenting in its naming of abuse and hypocrisy. A critique of the transnational status quo that also envisions the transforming possibilities of human rights, this bracing book makes us look as never before at an ongoing war too long undeclared.

More than half a century after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights defined what a human being is and is entitled to, Catharine MacKinnon asks: Are women human yet.

Central to Sayers's reflections is the conviction that both men and women are first of all human beings and must be regarded as essentially much more alike than different. We are to be true not so much to our sex as to our humanity.

The proper role of both men and women, in her view, is to find the work for which they are suited and to do it.

The question the title of this collection asks is and yet is not tongue-in-cheek. Catharine MacKinnon is a brilliant lawyer, professor and feminist. Her analysis of issues like "are women human" aren't born of common 20th century bra-burning rhetoric but the law.

Women's inequality is the new book's great theme, and MacKinnon's lifelong cause. Each country proclaims its commitment to equality and, in her view, hardly any delivers it substantively to : Stuart Jeffries.
