    Philosophy professor Christina Sommers has exposed a disturbing development: how a group of zealots, claiming to speak for all women, are promoting a dangerous new agenda that threatens our most cherished ideals and sets women against men in all spheres of life. In case after case, Sommers shows how these extremists have propped up their arguments with highly questionable but well-funded research, presenting inflammatory and often inaccurate information and stifling any semblance of free and open scrutiny.

    Overall

    I was disappointed that I spent a credit on this book. I would urge those who steer clear from Fox news, Ann Coulter and other quasi-informative political quacks, to treat this material similarly.

    Facts are no doubt important, however, belief frequently overrides the function of truth. By this, I mean that while the fact may be A (say, perhaps that the earth is round), the working rule could be B (the average person long ago BELIEVED that the earth was flat). In the preface, when she determines that "feminists", or "gender feminists" as she later "specifies", she attributes false information as male-bashing and lack of "fact-checking".

    Though the FACTS do not support the information, and the likes of Naomi Wolff, etc., quickly admitted that they were mistaken, editors did not question their "facts". This is because their "facts" were not outrageous, ie, it is plausible for average people (from publishers to readers) to think that spousal abuse is the number one cause for birth defects or that thousands of women die every year from anorexia.

    She probably found it so difficult to find funding for her research because it was taking place a century too late.
