Weve been duped.
We were raised to think we could have it all. In college we were told that men werent necessary. Pop culture told us that careernot familycame first. The idea of being a stay-at-home mom was for losers. And yet are we happier than our mothers or grandmothers, who grew up before women were "liberated" by the sexual revolution? For many women, the answer is no. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism, Carrie Lukas, a young career woman and new mother, sets the record straight: correcting the lies women have been told and slamming the door on the screaming harpies of NOW, feminist professors, and the rest of the bra-burners who have done so much to wreck womens lives.
Bet your feminist teacher never told you:
* Womens lib has "liberated" men from having to commit, "freed" women from marriage, and often "unshackled" women from having a family. * More than ever, women in their twenties and thirties live alone, are discarded by boyfriends after "living together," and are watching their biological clocks tick past the point of no return. * Women still prefer men who are breadwinners and can protect them physically.
Carrie Lukas is the vice president for policy and economics at the Independent Womens Forum. She is a senior fellow at the Goldwater Institute and a contributor
to National Review Online. She holds a masters degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a bachelors degree from Princeton.

I always thought that being a woman who was confident in her sexuality, in herself and in my choices, I was a feminist. According to this book, I am wrong. Read morePublished on September 16, 2011 by danielle
When I bought this book, I assumed it would be a tongue-in-cheek look at the feminist movement. It is actually a fascinating insight into the way feminists frame their arguments. Read morePublished on December 22, 2010 by Missy
This book is spot on. Feminism betrayed women in so many ways. Firstly the assumption that sex differences are a "social contstruct" and also the rise of "sexual freedom". Read morePublished on May 21, 2009 by Amy
