The ideologically based chill on free speech on university ampuses is preventing some people from expressing views, others from reading what they choose, and everyone from being treated as an adult. Words like "trigger", "bullying", "colonialist", and "racist" have been co-opted by the Supervising Class, and the university campus, which should by definition be a safe place for a universe of ideas, is being infantilized. Ironically, during this very Freedom to Read Week, Acadia University has acted against a psychology professor whose views challenge the identity politics of the moment. An colleague opposed to his right to express an opinion uses the word "extremist" to describe those who defend free speech. Does anti-free-speech extremism exist as well?

NEW RELEASE - 2018:
Do you know the names of the women who created the National Trust (UK), Kew Gardens, the Planned Parenthood Federation, the Battersea Dogs Home, Cruelty-Free International, the Cottage Garden style and Arts & Crafts movement, the poem on the Statue of Liberty, Kenya's Greenbelt Movement, Japan's Omoto religion, the Christian Science Monitor, the Gaia Theory?

Women Who Made the World is a short, accessible handbook that helps fill the knowledge gap.
