Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism
Once confident in the potential of feminism to create a more equitable and just society, Daphne Patai persuasively demonstrates in Heterophobia how the efforts of some feminists - members of what she calls the "sexual harassment industry" - have created an environment that stifles healthy and natural interactions between the sexes. The tremendous growth of sexual harassment legislation represents feminism's greatest contemporary success, but this victory has dubious consequences - a world where kindergarten boys face legal action for kissing female classmates and men are sued by coworkers for offenses such as unwanted hugs, uninvited compliments, or glances that last too long.
