About This Book

Welcome to the Land of Egalia!

Egalia's Daughters was published in 1977. Surprisingly, many of the elements in this book still ring true in the society we live in today. Written by Gerd Brantenberg, a renowned Norwegian author and activist, Egalia's Daughters received international acclaim.

Brantenberg humorously yet earnestly tackles one of the most hotly debated issues - gender roles. In the country of Egalia, the common gender roles are reversed. Wim (women) are the powerful, occupy higher positions, run the government. Menwim (Men) stay home, raise children and occupy insignificant, underpaid positions in society. Menwim are inferior to Wim, less respected, have limited rights, and live in inequality like women in our society. Egalia's Daughters raises questions on gender subjugation, and the author carefully reveals deeply embedded inequality between privileged and unprivileged in our society with a sarcastic voice.
