Take Off Your Rose Colored Glasses- You've got to read this book!

The main message in this book is that men have stopped degrading women, but women are stuck being submissive due to their lack of respect for themselves and other women. Women should definitely read this book! It is such a shocker as to how we are holding ourselves back...
The main message in this book is that men have stopped degrading women, but women are stuck being submissive due to their lack of respect for themselves and other women. Women should definitely read this book! It is such a shocker as to how we are holding ourselves back! I enjoyed this book because I could relate to it; I only disliked realizing I do many things the book says not to do. I would recommend the book Intercourse who Ariel Levy co wrote, but only to older audiences. Concisely, Levy exposes how women degrade each other, why they do it, and what behaviors need to change to be respected once more. My overall rating is 4/5 stars.

a big disappointment

I'm not sure why this book has gotten so many good reviews and attention. It seems like the author just wrote a few magazine articles and patched them together. There's no real work here, no real analysis, and nothing terribly new. Parts of the book are fun to read, but...

    Insightful expose.

    I just finished rereading this. I first read it in college, and have recommended it several times to my high school students. This time it struck me what was wrong about it: while the author methodically and eloquently exposes modern femininity's skewed worldview, no solution is offered. As a Bible-believer I would posit that a right view of womanhood can only be gained when one has a right view of self in relation to our Creator, not our culture. John 3.

    Flawed, but not worth passing up

    her writing isn't the best, but her observations are what is important. levy does not have the answers, but it has helped me understand what i am actually dealing with as a 22 year old woman today. her interviews offer insight into opinions and while i found the organization a bit off, i still couldn't put it down. i implore you! read this book, and spread it around, it's the only way things will begin to change.
