Authors challenge feminist ideals

Phyllis SchlaflySuzanne VenkerTwo noted authors have teamed up to write a provocative book challenging the feminist movement and its claim to liberate women. In their new book The Flipside of Feminism, Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly take on the general tenets of feminism.

 

In the book, Venker and Schlafly ask: "What if everything you've been told about women in America is wrong? What if what your college professors taught you -- along with television, movies, books, magazine articles, and even news reports -- have all been lies or distortions?"

 

Flipside of Feminism (book cover)Venker says it is time to liberate America from feminism's dead-end road.

 

"From the lie that you can have babies into your 40s -- it's just not true -- and that's, again, another politically incorrect statement, but it's also a fact. And if we want women to be able to enjoy their lives and have babies, get married, and have fulfilling lives, we have to tell them the truth," Venker argues.

 

The book also contends feminism has actually sabotaged women's happiness -- and hurt men, children, and society in the process. Venker says the fact that even many conservative women support what they think is the basic tenet of feminism -- equal rights for women -- shows just how insidious the feminist movement has been.

 

"That's why they like abortion and daycare," says the author. "You remove the babies and then you have no problem; we can be equal with men. They want there to be complete interchangeable sexes. There's just no recognition that human nature isn't that way."
  
The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know -- and Men Can't Say shares how conservative women are, in fact, the most liberated women in America and to whom young people should turn for advice.
