Forty years have passed since the feminist movement claimed to liberate women from preconceived notions of what it means to be female, and the results are in. Statistics from the National Bureau of Economic Research show that as women have gained more freedom, more education, and more power, they have become less happy.
Enough, says author and cultural critic Suzanne Venker. Feminism didn’t liberate women from anything. On the contrary, it holds women back from being true to who they really are. While modern women enjoy unprecedented freedom and opportunities, it isn’t feminists to whom women are indebted. Women’s progress has been a natural evolution, due in large part to men’s contributions.
The Flipside of Feminism provides readers with a whole new view of the American female, one that runs counter to what the feminist elite would have you believe. Venker’s rational approach to the battle of the sexes is precisely what women and men need to be able to move forward together.
