Absolutely gripping must-read,
This review is from: Backlash: The Undeclared War Against Women (Paperback)
This is considered one of the classics in feminism and I recently decided to buy it. It was worth every penny! I didn't think I'd finish it as fast as I did, I practically read it cover to cover in a few days. Seldom have I read anything as gripping, interesting and scary as this. One minute you're so angry you want to throw something, and the next you're slapping your forehead going "Oh my God, she's so right!"
As a Swedish reader I thought that - for me personally - some of her points on religion and childcare were a bit off target, but that's a small quibble indeed. Her analysis of how feminism was under attack in 80's newspapers, movies and tv is nothing short of brilliant. (Moral of the story: Never believe anything in the newspapers or on tv.)
Should be required reading in school. I can't recommend this enough!
