A new book that explains how American feminists for decades have fed the public their agenda about marriage, children, sex, education, politics and gender roles today earned high praise from James Dobson, the psychologist who founded Focus on the Family and now runs a new radio outreach called FamilyTalk.
“Certain moments happen in all our lives that seem to be of incredible import. I would venture to say this could be one of those moments,” Dobson said as the authors of “The Flipside of Feminism” Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly, joined him on his program, FamilyTalk.
Get the book that’s driving the feminists wild – “The Flipside of Feminism” – autographed exclusively by the authors, Suzanne Venker and the legendary Phyllis Schlafly, exclusively in the WND Superstore.
Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, “A Choice Not an Echo,” and she has been fighting for families since 1972 when she started her national volunteer organization, Eagle Forum.
Her niece is Suzanne Venker, an established author, blogger and featured writer at David Horowitz’s NewsReal.
Schlafly told Dobson, “Our position is that American women are the most fortunate class of people who ever lived on the face of the earth. … We have every opportunity and they were not created by feminists.”
Hear the interview:
Schlafly said the feminism movement wasn’t about helping women and families.
“If you read what the feminists wrote, they were not trying to get the women out of the home for a higher education standard … They really disdained the role of a fulltime homemaker, ‘wasting her life’ by taking care of children,” she said.
She said feminism at its core is “anti-male, anti-masculine, anti-marriage, anti-motherhood and anti-morality.”
The book explains since the 1960s, American feminists have set themselves up as the arbiters of all things female. Their policies have dominated the social and political landscape. The “spin sisters” in the media and their cohorts in academia are committed feminists. Consequently, everything Americans know – or think they know – about marriage, kids, sex, education, politics, gender roles, and work/family balance, has been filtered through a left-wing lens.
But it suggests that it is conservative women who actually are “in the best position to empower American women.”
In a review, Ann Coulter said, “A gutsy and profound book. Those who crave the truth will inhale ‘The Flipside of Feminism,’ while those beholden to feminism will resist it. For both, ‘Flipside’ is a must-read. Schlafly and Venker show how insidious the feminist movement is – and what is its real motive.”
From Mark Levin came, “‘The Flipside of Feminism’ exposes the lies at the core of the feminist agenda: there is no difference between men and women, the hook-up culture is liberating, women are oppressed victims in the home and office, and children are fine when left all day in daycare. Those who consider themselves ‘socially liberal but fiscally conservative’ will re-examine their attitudes after reading this book.”
Schlafly also has a syndicated column appearing in 100 newspapers and her radio commentaries daily are on more than 600 stations. She was named one of the 100 most important women of the 20th century by the “Ladies’ Home Journal.”
She’s written 20 books and served as a member of the Commission on the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, 1985-1991, appointed by President Reagan.
Venker previously wrote “7 Myths of Working Mothers” and has appeared on ABC, CNN, FOX, C-Span, PAX, EWTN — as well as hundreds of radio shows throughout the country.
In “Flipside,” Venker and Schlafly examine the bias, contradictions and elitism in so-called women’s studies taught at colleges and universities throughout the United States. Venker and Schlafly believe that the feminist dogma has been used to “brainwash” women – especially young women – since the 1960s.
