What has made women unhappy in the last decade? Faludi writes ‘is not their equality’ – which they don’t yet have – but the rising pressure to halt, even worse, women’s quest for that equality.
Recommended as essential reading for both sexes * Today * As ground-breaking in its own way as its two important predecessors, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex and Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, Faludi's book is just as gripping * Newsweek * The backlash against women is real. This is the book we need to understand it, to struggle through the battle fatigue and to keep going -- Alice Walker Persuasive, fair, entertaining, wonderfully informed, diverting -- Fay Weldon * Daily Mail * Faludi uses her dazzling investigative powers to zap the smug detractors of feminism, the hypocrites, backsliders, and antifeminists. The result is a rich and juicy read, informed by powerful logic and moral clarity -- Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
