Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A former teacher-turned-social critic, Suzanne Venker is an author and speaker on politics, marriage, parenting, and the culture. A well-known commentator on cultural issues, Suzanne has appeared on ABC, CNN, FOX, Huff-Po Live and C-Span--as well as hundreds of radio shows throughout the country, including the Laura Ingraham Show. How to Choose a Husband is her third book.

Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her bestselling 1964 book, A Choice Not an Echo. She has been a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972 when she started her national volunteer organization, Eagle Forum. In a ten-year battle, Mrs. Schlafly led the pro-family movement to victory over the principal legislative goal of the radical feminists called the Equal Rights Amendment.

More About the Author

SUZANNE VENKER is a Fox News contributor and the author of three books on marriage, motherhood, and the intersection of work and family. She is also the author of The War on Men, an eBook published on the heels of a Fox article (of the same name) that went viral in November 2012.

Known primarily as a feminist contrarian, Suzanne has written about women's and men's issues for various publications, including the New York Post, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Blaze, and Politix. She has been interviewed extensively by media, including Dr. James Dobson and Rush Limbaugh.

Suzanne has appeared on The View, Fox & Friends,, CNN, C-Span, and Australian television--as well as hundreds of radio shows throughout the country, including the Laura Ingraham show. Suzanne can also be heard every Thursday afternoon on The John Gibson Radio Show.

More recently, Suzanne founded Women for Men (along with Dr. Helen Smith and Christina Hoff Sommers), a news and opinion website devoted to improving gender relations and providing much-needed support for the American male.

Suzanne and her husband live in St. Louis, MO, with their two school-age children.

Customer Reviews

This book is very well written.
Marsha D. Fortin
No woman should be forced to have a child she does not want, or have decisions about her reproductive rights made for her by white heterosexual males.
Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly do a great job of spelling out the harm that has been done to America by the feminist movement.

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.

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".

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.
