Phrase 1 feminism: get the vote (good) Phrase 2 feminism: equality in the workplace (good) Phrase 3 feminism: insist on the "right" to be vulgar, promiscuious and obnoxious (all supposedly "rights" of self-expression over social order and decency). It hightlights just another aspect of how our society has grown terribly lazy and vulgar and falls back on the "rights culture" to justify it. There are some contradictions and logical fallacies here, as there always are in particularly right and left geared books, but the basic point is clear and valid. Women actually moved backward in Phrase 3 and brought themselves lower rather than higher in social standing.

narrator was great. i loved the story and the development of the ideas. it flowed nicely and makes sense. although, for a "politically incorrect" guide to women, sex, marriage, and feminism, i felt this book went right to the precipace of pushing hot buttons but didn't quite take the dive i had forseen in a few instances. it definitely could have gone farther. exactly for this reason i would feel comfortable in reccomending this book to my own "feminist" lady friends. i look forward to rereading after i have my own children.
