The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is that the guy doing the feminist viewpoint just ignored many of the points brought up. Farrell does an excellent job of offering way and means for understanding feminist propaganda when it rears its ugly head.

He in no way attacks the many form o ...more

An interesting debate on a topic close to my heart. I think Sterba does an excellent job pushing back against Farrell's argument, which can border on offensive.

Had to read this for a philosophy of feminism class. It was really interesting.

An excellent book about the role of feminism in society. My only gripe is that James Sterba represented feminism - was it so hard to find a woman to take that side (nothing personal, Prof. Sterba)? All in all a great conversation starter and thought-provoking read.
