19. Reactions to Feminism.

Faludi, Susan. _Backlash. The Undeclared War Against American Women_,
(1991).
Gives an overview of the reaction to feminism in America today.
It is an incredible compendium of incorrect facts, bogus
statistics, false logic and unfounded theories, all of which which
are presented by society and the media in particular as "true" and
"factual" in order to keep women subordinate. One caveat about
this book is that the author seems unsympathetic to the difficult
choices a woman must make if she wants to combine career and
family.

Kamen, Paula, "Feminism, a Dirty Word", The New York Times,
November 23, 1990, page A37.

Leidholdt, Dorchen and Janice G. Raymond, eds. _The Sexual Liberals
and the Attack on Feminism_. Pergamon Press, New York. 1990.
Essays which originated as speeches and panel presentations at a
conferences on April 6, 1987, at the New York University Law
School. Includes bibliographical references and index.

Smith, Joan. _Misogynies: Reflections on Myths and Malice_. Fawcett
Columbine Book, Ballantine Books, Publishers. 1989. ISBN:0-449-90591-8.
From blurb: "Joan Smith has written a witty and bold collection
of essays on the alarming subject of women-hating. She observes
the phenomenon wryly and never succumbs to the fatuous
generalizations which characterize misogyny itself...Misogyny,
unlike sexism, grows in this way behind women's backs, which may
be why we sometimes optimistcially believe it is no longer
prevalent. It is aptly, intelligently and compassionately put
before us again in this well-written book." (Literary Review).
