last night I finished the super long intro.

Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women - Susan Faludi

I will be posting some thought provoking quotes now. [At least to me :P]


The U.S. Attorney General's Commission on Pornography even proposed that women's professional advancement might be responsible for rising rape rates. With more women in college and at work now, the commission members reasoned in their report, women just have more opportunities.


Just let that quote sink in. This book was published in 1991.


The rising chorus of female protest shouldn't be written off as feminist-induced 'oversensitivity'.


My note in the margins is a big resounding YES! With three underlines. Yes, this is my copy. Lol


[...]antifeminist backlash has been set off not by women's achievement of full equality but by the increased possibility that they might win it.


Interesting food for thought.
