Book Description

Forty years have passed since the so-called women's movement claimed to liberate women from preconceived notions of what it means to be female - and the results are in. The latest statistics show that as women have gained more freedom, more education, and more power, they have become less happy. In The Flipside of Feminism, Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly provide readers with a new view of women in America - casting off the ideology that preaches faux empowerment and liberation from men and marriage. Their book demonstrates that conservative women are, in fact, the most liberated women in America and the folks to whom young people should be turning for advice. Their confident and rational approach to the battle of the sexes is precisely what America needs.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"A gutsy and profound book. Those who crave the truth will inhale The Flipside of Feminism, while those beholden to feminism will resist it.  For both, Flipside is a must-read.  Schlafly and Venker show how insidious the feminist movement is -- and what is its real motive." - Ann Coulter

"The Flipside of Feminism exposes the lies at the core of the feminist agenda: there is no difference between men and women, the hook-up culture is liberating, women are oppressed victims in the home and office, and children are fine when left all day in daycare. Those who consider themselves 'socially liberal but fiscally conservative' will re-examine their attitudes after reading this book." - Mark Levin

"My friend Phyllis Schalfly has been a tireless warrior against the feminists' ongoing cultural assaults on this nation and refuses to allow their attacks to proceed under the radar while so many other important issues consume our attention and energy. Phyllis and Suzanne Venker, have written a powerful expose on the feminists' war on traditional values and, ultimately, on the true value of women and family. In "The Flipside of Feminism" they provide a practical guide for reclaiming what should never have been lost." -  David Limbaugh 

"Phyllis Schlafly and Suzanne Venker have written a courageous and illuminating book on the oppression of women by the feminist left. Everyone of sound mind should read and learn from this book." -- David Horowitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Bamboozled by feminism July 30, 2011
Format:Hardcover
I generally don't write reviews but I must thank the authors for writing this book. It should be interesting to note that I am a liberal black woman who used to consider herself a feminist...that is until I read this book. I found this book based on reviews from another book called Manning Up by Kay S. Hymowitz. I was trying to get to the source of the tension and battles between the sexes. It used to be that these so called battles were nothing more than harmless back and forth words...everyone would shake hands and go home. Nowadays it is going far beyond this harmless chatter into full blown fights where everyone loses. This book sheds light on feminism which may be causing this tension.

From a woman's perspective, I feel like we have all been bamboozled into thinking the career is everything. Fortunately, I've never quite fallen prey to this assumption but I have obsessed over my career a time or two nonetheless. My generation believed that once you graduated college and got a good career then your life would be set. Well, not so fast...most of us never factored the biological clock into this equation. And now I have friends in their 30s and 40s who have to make tough decisions of whether to hurry up and marry any man who wants to have a child or settle for a sperm bank. That's not what feminism was supposed to bring us. This is not what we bargained for when we accepted it. On the other hand, I have co-workers who are rushed to get into the office and rushed to get home to take over the 2nd shift (being a mother!). They're tired and weary and would rather stay home and take care of their family. It's an impossible dream because now their lifestyles are dependent upon a two income household.

Format:Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As a woman in her late 20's who recently made the transition from career world to domestic life, raising my son, this book is exactly what I needed. People talk about the working mother's guilt, but there is a lot of guilt for those of us with feminism ideology ingrained in our brain who decide their current calling to be their children. When making the decision to quit my job (which I loved and I was good at) I knew, deep down,that I wanted to be a full time mother. I knew from the beginning (in college) that I eventually wanted to be the one raising my children, shaping them into little, respectable members of society. But, when the time came to quit, I felt an incredible amount of pressure to remain at work. Not from my husband, but from society. There is a certain response you get from people when you tell them you are a stay at home mom. It is like, "Oh, good for you." or "Isn't he a lucky boy", which on the surface seem like decent enough responses, but the condescending facial expressions and tone of voice that go along with them are uncomfortable to endure.

This book is written for women, like me, who know it is their duty to take responsibility for the people they bring into this world, but feel they owe it to the world to remain in the workforce because of societal guilt. "We've come so far and made so many advancements. We owe it to ourselves and to the women who came before us to stay at work and continue to build a career." (That was the guilt I had at least). But, what is important that this book points out is no matter how much you think you "owe it to" whomever.... you owe it to your children to give them the best upbringing you can.

So many women say "I wish I could stay home, but I need to work".

5.0 out of 5 stars Putting the puzzle together April 25, 2012
By Rebecka
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had thought and felt for quite some time that something was awry; particularly when I stared into my infant daughter's face and wondered how I could ever let this beautiful being out of my sight for eight hours a day while I went to a job. My husband must have seen something in me I didn't, first because he married me in my cranky, man hating state, second, because he stood by my side as I struggled with how to do what a good feminist girl shoud and how to do what is right. Up until my daughter was born, I had done what liberal media and feminism had told me to do: Graduated with a double degree, earned a masters, put off marriage, hated men or at least distrusted them greatly while belittling their very existence, and loathed the thought of ever being locked behind a front door all day. But here I was, a mother and wife, feeling an incredible, almost primal, need to stay home with this little being. After bucking the feminist system for four years, staying home with my baby, birthing a second daughter at home (just to buck the feminist medical system of "put up and shut up"), I found "Flipside." I read and reread parts of the book. I cried, I fumed! I healed! It was like all the pieces of the puzzle, everything I had been doing that went against everything I had learned, fell into place. Suzanne is not only an informative writer, she is honest, candid, all the other cliche things you want to say about a good writer, and better!! She makes sure to touch on all of the really important issues like money, sex, education, historical facts vs. fiction, emotional and mental health, children, with a very tender approach to religion as she understands her audience may not be of one spiritual sect. She is the validation women my age, and hopfully our daughters, will need to live in a society that puts women against men and eachother when primaly, we want to care for and build our homes, families, communities, and more.
