Before anyone condones or criticizes feminism or it's impact on today's society, I urge and challenge that person to read this book.
It's fair, logical and a true insight to what has happened in USA and has been imported into the UK.
The sexes ARE different and that needs to be celebrated. We both swim or drown together. And it's in the balance according to Parker.
Chapters 1.2,3... and 8 were the most potent for me.
As an innocent victim of militant feminism via lies and fabrications endorsed by the WA phenomenon(supported by "charity" status from the UK State) I realised I am not alone in attracting 21st century bigotry by virtue of my genes alone.
The conclusion: Nobody Wins
Its witty style makes the book easy to read but it doesn't deal lightly with the important issues. The writer is one of an increasing number of perceptive women who are genuinely concerned for the welfare of both men and children who are now suffering from the effects of the feminization of society. She cuts through the cant promulgated by so much of the media for decades past as she deals with marriage, sex, education, pornography etc. in a responsible way seldom seen in today's media. The book is by no means politically correct; it's not that shallow, but time and again, I gave a mental "Hear! Hear!" as nail after nail was hit right on the head.
Men, and women with a sense of humour, will love reading chapter five of this book. Kathleen Parker's style really comes into its own here where she deals with the diatribe of the "Vagina Monologues". Be sure to hold on to your sides if you are a man. This chapter is a real hoot.
Parker is the consummate researcher and writer, backing up her assertions and views with detailed references and examples - and she has a sense of humor that allows you to enjoy it.
Ignore the feminist attacks and get the book. Enjoy some truth for a change and hope to see Parker in print again and again.

As a cultural perspective on the modern role of men, how that role has changed over the years, and how to synergize the necessary, right and natural equality between men and women without devaluing either gender, this book is fantastic.
This book also makes you think hard about your preconceived notions of gender, gender roles, and why it seems that many men end up as irresponsible and untethered and why women end up going for men who don't provide them with the emotional and spiritual support they need.
This book makes you think - period. Although there is a distinctly conservative political slant, this is the kind of book that doesn't use that as a crutch or a bludgeon - and its logic stands up, even once that bias is removed. If you're a woman trying to understand why your husband, brother or son is having trouble figuring themselves out or if you're a man confused about why you feel attacked without any real proof - then this book might explain a few things.
