This book changed the way I think about feminism or the liberation feminists. My younger self would be angry at me for reading this but young Ariana is wise beyond her years she foresaw the contradictions and excesses of the liberation movement. She spoke for the middle and she did it in such an intelligent way. I am shocked and inspired that she wrote this book in her earlier twenties.

“What Women's Lib might achieve if their 'consciousness raising' - or in plain English, brainwashing— campaign succeeds is a society whose members have identical roles but are perpetually at war with themselves; a society of males made neurotic by suppressed masculinity, of females made miserable by having masculine roles thrust upon them that contradict their feminine impulses.” 3 likes
