Book Description

4 Mar 2014 Manifestos for the 21st Century
Among liberal thinkers, there is an optimistic belief that men and women are on a cultural journey toward equality - in the workplace, on the street, and in the home. But observation and evidence both tell us that in many ways this progress has stopped - and in some cases even reversed. In "The End of Equality", renowned feminist Beatrix Campbell argues that even as the patriarchy has lost some of its legitimacy, new inequalities are emerging in our culture. We are living, Campbell writes, in an era of neopatriarchy in which violence has proliferated; body anxiety and self-hatred have flourished; rape is committed with impunity; sex trafficking thrives; and the struggle for equal pay is at an end. After four decades observing society, Campbell still speaks of the long-sought goal of gender equality. But now she calls for a new revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book 13 April 2014
Beatrix Campbell makes sense. This book is enjoyable, informative and right on the money. It will make you think, and offers feminists and other human rights campaigners an insight into what has gone wrong with the campaign for women's equality, and offers insights and advice about what needs to happen next. Refreshing, timely and important.

I loved this small jewel of a book. Packed with information and statistics that evidences that the struggle for female equality across the globe is far from over and that women face an increasingly vicious backlash against the gains made in the 60s and 70s. A must read.
