5.0 out of 5 stars Backlash packs a double-punch..., 13 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Backlash: The Undeclared War Against Women (Paperback)
First it opened my eyes, and then it made me angry. Faludi makes her case with both wit and erudition, plus about 80 pages of documentation. Perhaps the most interesting section is that on the women of the New Right, who hypocritically proclaim that a woman's place is in her home with her children, all the while dropping off their children at day care as they lobby for "family values." It certainly made me wonder how much society has changed since the publication of this book: if women in this day and age haven't progressed far beyond the the obstacles of the 80s backlash, maybe we haven't "come a long way, baby."
