Women Who Make the World Worse : and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports
Women Who Make the World Worse and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools Families Military and Sports Author:Kate O'Beirne A top conservative writer explores the feminist assault on our families, schools, workplaces, and military — As a woman, Kate OBeirne can say things a male commentator could never get away with. In her long-awaited first book, she takes on Americas leading feministsincluding Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Eleanor Sme... more »al, Maureen Dowd, Kate Michelman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and even Sex and the Citys Carrie Bradshaw. She confronts them with hard evidence of how women like them have done more harm than good over the last four decades. OBeirne is all for womens equality and celebrates the unprecedented opportunities they enjoy today. But she faults those feminists who believe that a hostile patriarchy reigns and that women remain its helpless victims. Their agenda is not profemale; its merely antimale. Women Who Make the World Worse shows how their destructive handiwork can be felt in every corner of American life, including:
fractured families and dispensable dads
offices and schools that have become battlegrounds in the gender wars
military units that put lives at risk to promote social engineering This book takes on some very powerful women and challenges beliefs that have become feminist orthodoxy, starting with the myth that men are the enemy of womens progress. OBeirne marshals her allies, prepares for a good fight, and never loses her sense of humor. This is a provocative book that will appeal to anyone, male or female, who wants some old-fashioned common sense about relations between the sexes.« less

Well, I'm a feminist ... so, of course, people are going to expect my dislike of this book. I did give it only half a star, but probably not for the reasons expected. It seemed to me like the author took generalizations and stereotypes about feminists and argued against those. Which, to me, seemed pointless. I'm a feminist, and yet I have NEVER been "anti-male." I believe in equality for all people. We're all humans first, before we divide into genders.
The backlash against feminism and the reason why it's practically become a dirty word is mainly due to media. Something which the author clearly buys into. We don't burn bras, we don't hate men, we don't sit around plotting to take over the word and creating a system of matriarchy, and we certainly have not ruined schools, families, military, or sports.
I'd skip over this book, as it doesn't present a fair/objective view of feminism.
