A book event
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. Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly argue that it’s time to liberate America from feminism’s dead-end road and cast off the ideology that preaches faux empowerment and liberation from men and marriage.
While modern women enjoy unprecedented freedom and opportunities, Venker and Schlafly posit 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 in universities, the mainstream media and popular culture. They believe that conservative women are, in fact, the most liberated women in America and the folks to whom young people should be turning for advice. And, they provide a step-by-step guide for how women can embrace their maternal desire, maintain strong marriages and also carve out a life of their own.
