Backlash: The Undeclared War Against Women
Backlash The Undeclared War Against Women Author:Susan Faludi This study is an account of the "war" against women, the insidiously manipulated political and cultural backlash against the hard-won equality and independence which women achieved in the 1970s and 1980s. Using examples from all areas of public life (advertising, film, TV, fashion, politics), Faludi, in this revised edition for Britain and the r... more »est of the world, presents a damning picture of the erosion of women's status at the end of the 20th century. The author has won the Pulitzer Prize for an article she wrote for the "Wall Street Journal".« less
I really enjoyed this book. It provided incredible insight into historical and social issues that impact women. It was thought-provoking, well-written, and interesting. As I was reading it, I was either nodding in agreement, pausing to ponder her statements, or feeling empowered to do something about some of the injustices that women face. This book really made me look at things more deeply, whether they be movies, books, or music.
I highly encourage both women and men to read this book.
