As a woman, Kate OBeirne can say things a male commentator could never get away with. In her long-awaited first book, she takes on Americas leading feministsincluding Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Eleanor Smeal, Maureen Dowd, Kate Michelman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and even Sex and the Citys Carrie Bradshaw. She confronts them with hard evidence of how women like them have done more harm than good over the last four decades.
OBeirne is all for womens equality and celebrates the unprecedented opportunities they enjoy today. But she faults those feminists who believe that a hostile patriarchy reigns and that women remain its helpless victims. Their agenda is not profemale; its merely antimale.
Women Who Make the World Worse shows how their destructive handiwork can be felt in every corner of American life, including:
fractured families and dispensable dads
offices and schools that have become battlegrounds in the gender wars
military units that put lives at risk to promote social engineering
This book takes on some very powerful women and challenges beliefs that have become feminist orthodoxy, starting with the myth that men are the enemy of womens progress. OBeirne marshals her allies, prepares for a good fight, and never loses her sense of humor. This is a provocative book that will appeal to anyone, male or female, who wants some old-fashioned common sense about relations between the sexes.
