In this provocative new book, France's leading feminist theorist launches a broadside against the way in which feminism has evolved since the 1990s. After the victories of the previous decades, during which women had made some real advances in social and political life, a new sensibility began to emerge in the 1990s which led to a reversal in the hierarchy of values.

In this short, rather polemical work, Badinter argues against what she sees as French feminism's return to essentialism, claiming that it short changes all genders. She's writing mainly for a French audience, so most of her examples were unfamiliar to me, but that didn't hamper her clear, passionate argument.

I liked Dead End Feminism and found several of Badinter's formulations and critiques to be apt and insightful, however, it also felt somewhat dated (it is about ten years old, after all)
