Overview

The principal target of feminist fire in the on-going "gender wars" is not men but traditional wives and mothers so says a lawyer-turned-housewife in this powerful critique of contemporary feminism. With a profound understanding of the quandary of modern women, Carolyn Graglia shows that the cultural assault on marriage, motherhood, and traditional sexuality, rooted in the pursuit of economic and political power, has robbed women of their surest source of fulfillment.

Editorial Reviews

David Gelernter
. . .[A] powerful, noble, tragic book. It presents modern femiinism for what it is: institutionalized hatred of motherhood and homemaking. . . .The book is honest, passionate, furious, and not for the faint-hearted. . . .Mrs. Graglia never beats around the bush or plays it safe. . . .This is a revolutionary book. The revolution itself is bound to follow someday. —National Review

Graglia indicts feminism for the demise of the traditional family, the degradation of the homemaker, the spread of venereal disease, the growth of income disparity, and the defeat of the United States in Vietnam (no kidding). Graglia, who holds a law degree from Columbia University, believes that she is a better representative of the 'average woman' than (disproportionately Jewish) feminists are. She recommends a movement to reform 'no-fault' divorce laws to ensure financial security for full-time homemakers (although the old laws were notoriously ineffective), inspired by women who have been 'awakened by transforming sexual experiences including the child-bearing and nurturing that are the fruits of her sexual encounters.' She observes, in passing, that the 'sexual ministrations of [her] husband' do more to make her feel alive than does reading Supreme Court opinions. -- Cynthia Harrison, George Washington University, Washington, D.C.
