Forty years have passed since the so-called women’s movement claimed to liberate women from preconceived notions of what it means to be female — and the results are in. The latest 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, say Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly. It’s time to liberate America from feminism’s dead-end road. While modern women enjoy unprecedented freedom and opportunities, Venker and Schlafly argue that this progress is not the result of feminism.
Women’s progress has been a natural evolution, due in large part to men’s contributions. American men are not a patriarchal bunch, as feminists claim. They have, in fact, aided women’s progress. And like women, they have been just as harmed by the feminist movement.
In The Flipside of Feminism, Venker and Schlafly provide readers with a new view of women in America—one that runs counter to what Americans have been besieged with for decades. Their book demonstrates that traditional women are, in fact, the most liberated women in America and the folks to whom young people should be turning for advice. Their confident and rational approach to the battle of the sexes is precisely what America needs.
“…the straightest route to what will once again make women strong.” — Midge Decter, founder of the Independent Women’s Forum and author of An Old Wife’s Tale
” The Flipside of Feminism helps us understand that portion of feminism that demonizes men, discounts dads, undervalues the family, and encourages women to see themselves as victims—none of which can accurately be called “progress.” — Dr. Warren Farrell, author of international bestseller The Myth of Male Power
“The Flipside of Feminism exposes the lies at the core of the feminist agenda: there is no difference between men and women, the hook-up culture is liberating, women are oppressed victims in the home and office, and children are fine when left all day in daycare. Those who consider themselves ‘socially liberal but fiscally conservative’ will re-examine their attitudes after reading this book.” — Mark Levin
“The Flipside of Feminism is a book that speaks truths we all know in our heart but don’t often know how to express or whether to express.” — Dinesh D’Souza, bestselling author and noted speaker
