Product Details


“Mona Charen has written a book that matters. Honest, fearless, and insightful, it’s a polemic that’s more than a polemic. It’s a thought-provoking attempt to induce those willing to liberate themselves from contemporary pieties to think anew about the family, about equality, and about the nature of men and women.” —William Kristol, editor at large, The Weekly Standard
“The solution to the boorish male behavior that has given rise to the #MeToo movement is not more feminism, but less, as Mona Charen reveals in her compelling expose of feminism’s war on reality. Gender studies departments will not issue trigger warnings about this book, they will try to ban it entirely—which is why the rest of us should read this lucid analysis of how our society has gone dangerously off track in ordering the relations between the sexes.” —Heather MacDonald, Thomas W. Smith fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The War on Cops
“An honest book on a crucial subject by a wonderful writer. Her book will be widely praised and widely attacked. Even the attackers, somewhere within themselves, will know it’s true. This is a book that deals in reality.” —Jay Nordlinger, senior editor, National Review
Sex Matters is a cultural milestone. Mona Charen dissolves decades of fallacies in the acid of honesty. I found this book thrilling.” —George Gilder, author of Life After Google and Men and Marriage 
“I have long regarded Mona Charen as a national treasure. Sex Matters reinforces me in that judgment. The brilliance, wisdom, and courage on display in the book are breathtaking. Here is an author who boldly speaks moral truth to cultural power.” —Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
“One of the greatest lies told to my generation is not only that we can do it all, but that we should as well. American mothers are pushed to a breaking point; trying to do everything at work and be Pinterest-perfect at home. Sex Matters is essential reading for any woman looking to see through the fiction that women are not only the same as men, but that they should want to be as well.” —Bethany Mandel, stay-at-home mother and editor at Ricochet

“An excellent issue-by-issue overview of conservative thinking on, well, sex matters — from the wage gap, to abortion, to the rise of unwed childbearing, to the mommy wars, to the hookup culture and alleged rape crisis on college campuses, to the new debate over transgenderism.”The National Review
