The book gives a historical overview of the evolution of feminism and women’s rights in Malta and abroad, acknowledging gains of the women’s movement, but concluding that conflicting opinions, antagonism and prejudice present problems and halt further advancement due to the strict adherence to traditional gender roles. Callus has been a promoter of women’s rights during the 1980s and 1990s. Chapter 3 It-Tieni Qawmien (The Second Wave) and Chapter 10 Gheluq (Conclusion) are selected as most relevant.
