I am a Christian and a hopeful homemaker. I have always tried to convince other women of the advantages of returning to traditional family roles. It has been hard for me to prove feminism as the farse I have found it to be. They would always say the same thing 'You just think that because you're a Christian.' Mrs. Graglia's book has proved invaluable to the efforts of the average housewife by providing a secular viewpoint of feminism. Now when my non-Christian friends ask about my beliefs, I can recommend this book to them. This book has allowed me to prove that returning to the home isn't just a 'religious' thing. Graglia points out some of the lies and exagerrations turned out by the feminist community. The fact that she was able to achieve a law degree unhampered by men in a time when feminist say women were not allowed the same educational oppotunites of men serves as invaluable proof that things were not as modern-feminists lead us to believe they were. The only problem I had with the book was that I had trouble understanding some of the terminology in the book (big words). It's not something that can be easily understood by the average reader unless they have a dictionary or something. Another good book I would recommend is 'The Way Home: Beyond Feminism Back to Reality' by Mary Pride. It was published in the eighties and is a little out of date, but is still a good read. You can find it in Barnes and Nobles-out-of print search.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
