Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Journalist Rene Denfeld explains why her generation has become alienated from the women's movement, maintaining that the actions of the movement's current leadership have actually encouraged a return to the kind of sexual repression and political powerlessness challenged by feminists in the 1970s. Here she offers a practial battle plan which includes confronting the issues of child care and birth control, working for equal government representation, and treating sexual assault as a serious crime.

Riassunto: The author shows that feminism in the 1990s is anti-men and obsessed with date rape, pornography, and goddess religions, and today's young women have rejected it by the thousands. The author, a working woman and an amateur boxer, pulls no punches about who's at fault and why. The author after dozens of interviews shows how the feminist leaders of the 90s - with their victim-mentality and anti-male stance - are the new Victorians, sexually repressive and self-righteous while insisting they are morally superior to men. The gauntlet has been thrown before the women's movement.
Dal retro di copertina: Why do so many young women who believe strongly in equal rights refuse to call themselves feminists? Does feminism's counterproductive obsession with date rape, pornography, and goddess religions alienate young women - and lead the movement toward a dangerous alliance with the religious right? Is the agenda of today's women's movement uncomfortably similar to a Victorian crusade for repression? Rene Denfeld, a young woman born a year after the foundation of the National Organization for Women, says feminist leaders are out of touch. In the movement's latest obsessions, Denfeld finds a complete reversal of the movement's progress made since the 1970s. This decade's hypersensitive feminist - fearful, disillusioned, and adamantly anti-male - bears a strong resemblance to the dainty, sheltered, chaste Victorian lady of a century ago. And this is why, Denfeld says, young women are abandoning the feminist movement. Rene Denfeld cuts to the roots of the Anti-Phallic campaign, male bashing, and sexual politics; victim Mythology. Why date rape has become an excuse to blame men, and excuses women from responsibility regarding their sexual choices; the Anti-Pornography Crusade. How anti-pornography activists teach that sex is something decent feminists should not discuss; and goddess worship, or why new feminist visions of religion are a throwback to the Victorian view that women are by nature morally superior to men - and how this keeps women weak. Offering realistic alternatives to ideologically rigid and sometimes ridiculous doctrine, The New Victorians is a rallying cry for young women to take back feminism - and be proud of it.
