Introduction by Mary McDermott Shideler Are Women Human? The Human-Not-Quite-Human
Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) was a lay theologian and Christian apologist who met from time to time with the "Inklings," the group of Oxford intellectuals that included C. S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Her numerous writings include detective stories centered on Lord Peter Wimsey, studies of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, radio plays such as The Man Born to Be King, and translations of Dante.
The New York Times Book Review "Forthright and commonsensical. Christianity Today Offers pointed and witty arguments for treating women as individuals, not as a homogeneous class."
