From the Publisher"Badinter's incisive essay appears quite compelling when setagainst the alternative: a diffuse, muddled culture ofresentment."
Times Literary Supplement
"This book is an event. Elisabeth Badinter is one of theintellectuals who has worked tirelessly to build the theoreticaledifice which has nourished French feminism. For thirty years shehas been part of the women’s liberation movement, withoutever belonging to any of its cliques. Now she protests forcefullyagainst the way it has evolved."
"In Dead End Feminism, Elisabeth Badinter attacks the newmoral order that certain proponents of feminism have claimed toestablish in the last couple of decades. Having provided Frenchfeminism with its most solid intellectual foundations, she knowswhat she’s talking about. Parity, pornography, prostitution,sexual harassment: Badinter carries out a veritable demolition ofreceived ideas in a vigorous and well argued work."
"With her cutting intelligence and devastating turn of phrase,Elisabeth Badinter will make the guardians of the faith grit theirteeth. She runs the risk of betraying her camp; but it is her campthat has betrayed the cause of emancipation, which is the realconcern of both women and men."
