Good book, but very unhealthy ideas
on May 27, 2015
I was gifted this book by my mother a few months ago, and finally got around to reading it. I very much enjoyed this book, but could not overlook a lot of the things that she was saying. Although a lot of the things Ms. Walker say ring true, through this book, it seems that she has become what she is criticizing: biased, hateful, and full of bile. Yes, men have raped, robbed, and pillaged the mother more times than can be counted throughout history. But they are not all warmongering rapists who want to oppress women, as Ms. Walker seems to portray. This book basically trashes one gender, and elevates another. This is against the whole principal of feminism, and I do not agree that this is the way to attain equality.
