TOO MUCH How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today

by | Read by Suehyla El Attar, Rachel Vorona Cote [Note]

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Suehyla El Attar perfectly captures author Rachel Vorona Cote's in-your-face attitude, confidently delivering her research and humor. Cote describes how men have pathologized women's emotions as being "too much" for years, often shunting them aside by institutionalizing them or otherwise locking them away from society. El Attar's upbeat tone is just right for the material. She brings an agreeable insouciance to the author's examples, and she wonderfully performs snippets from literature, contemporary culture, film, history, and more. Cote's arguments are clever, reflecting attitudes that go back centuries and support her position that being a woman today still carries with it the stigma of being "too much." El Attar's engaging delivery encourages women to embrace who they are. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
