Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle award for nonfiction, this controversial, thought-provoking, and timely book is "as groundbreaking as Simone de Beauvoir's The "Second Sex" and Betty Friedan's "The Feminine Mystique."" -- "Newsweek."
"The backlash against women is real. This is the book we need to help us understand it, to struggle through the battle fatigue, and to keep going." -- Alice Walker.
"Withering commentary... This eloquent, brilliantly argued book should be read by everyone concerned with gender equality." -- "Publishers Weekly."
"Backlash is the right book at exactly the right time... This trenchant, passoinate, and lively book should be an eye-opener even for feminists who thought they understood what has been going on." -- "Los Angeles Times Book Review"
