Phyllis Schlafly is a constitutional attorney and president of Eagle Forum, a leading fighter for pro-family politics and agendas. This book is her reflections on the sexual liberations and other feminist's ideas in comparison to how she has lived. She demonstrates through her life that it was by living a Christian life of devotion and motherhood that she was to be "liberated." The book provides criticism and arguments against radical feminism. Betty Freidan once said over the radio, "I would like to burn her [Phyllis Schlafly] at the stake." It takes much courage for any individual to stand up against a political force such as feminism and say, "You're wrong." Much like Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand in THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING A WOMAN, Schlafly shows how the system that best promotes women isn't the government; it's God.
A must read for anyone wanting to show other women's accounts of the feminist movement and the Equal Rights Admendment.

The best thing about this book is her case against the Equal Rights Amendment. She points out that American women stood to LOSE legal rights and privileges without gaining anything of real importance. She argues forthrightly and coherently that the ERA would have necessitated drafting women and putting them in frontline infantry combat which would have been disastrous both for the women themselves and for the military. Another good point is that, at a period in which women's sports were just getting respect and recognition, the ERA could have wiped them out. Quite simply, a women's team that can't exclude men athletes soon disappears as a women's team. She points out that full-time homemakers could be left high and dry of legal support.
She is less astute when getting into "social philosophy." Some of her sex differences are muddles and mushy misleading generalizations. Some are just plain wrong as when she says women can't enjoy sex as much as men when the truth is that we have the ability to enjoy sexuality more (while still bearing far more risks from partnered sex).

Nobody including the government is telling you what choices to make in terms of family work etc.. That's the point! This author chose to be a lawyer, columnist, radio commentator, and political activist while raising her own 6 children. How much time and attention did she give her family?? Yet she chooses to judge those who also try to find a balance with work and family. This author reaps the rewards of social evolution, but doesn't seem to want anybody else to. Figure out what is best for you and your family on your own. So many women have fought for you to be able to do so. If you want to stay home with your children and you can afford to do so - great, but if you want or need to work outside the home there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
