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 exposes feminism's totalitarian impulse and its contribution to the "tangle of pathologies" that have left marriage and family life in tatters.
-- How has feminism destroyed women's sexual satisfaction?
-- How did society become vulnerable to feminism?
-- Why are housewives despised?
