Praise

“Provocative, challenging, infuriating and insightful…A major contribution to the debate about what feminism should mean.”
–Susan Estrich, Robert Kingsley Professor of Law and Political Science, University of Southern California

“This book is a valuable contribution to the heated debate about the nature and future of feminism. Stressing the important work that remains to be done to secure individual freedom of choice and equal opportunities for all women–regardless of their views or values–Lehrman’s message should be welcome to all civil libertarians.”
–Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union; Professor of Law, New York Law School

“Karen Lehrman brings something very attractive to the feminist debate: rigorous common sense. She confronts the hard questions–about sex in the workplace, aggression in the bedroom, about economic inequality and epidemic depression, about biological differences and psychological asymmetries–and finds a principled basis for answering them. There are sentences in this book that are worth volumes. Many of today’s celebrated feminists will wake up one day and realize that she’s right.”
–Mickey Kaus, author of The End of Equality

“A lively defense of equality and individuality; of feminist commitment and common sense; of the ways in which so much feminist theory is outstripped by the complex reality of women’s lives. Lehrman brings zest to her task.”
–Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Democracy on Trial
