Equal Partners

By Roland Ezri

"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

If the book does well in North America, there is little doubt in my mind that it can do just as well in Europe. In the ’90s, I visited England, France, Portugal, and Israel. While these were short vacations, I couldn’t miss the signs indicating that life is harder for women in these European countries than it is for North American women. Therefore, the new ideas in this book may find a receptive audience in Europe.

Subsidiary Rights

I admit that the possibility of generating income from subsidiary rights is far-fetched, but if the book “catches fire,” it could happen!

General Benefits

Many ideas in the book (such as the children of the kibbutz, and the complementarity of the sexes) could be developed as articles or books in their own right. I realize that I cannot copyright these ideas, but writing based on the original concepts outlined in my book would be most gratifying to me.

Final Comment

I believe that Equal Partners is an important contribution to the field of women’s issues. I stumbled upon the basic concept some 20 years ago. On and off, for some eight years, I worked on what proved to be a very challenging manuscript. Along the way, many people assisted me. Some were aware of their contribution, most were not. For their sake, and for the multitude of women with the potential to change our society, I hope this book will find a wide audience.
