Beyonce, sports, birth control, Kate Middleton, women in combat, paid leave policies… there is something for everyone in this fascinating, timely book. This is a must-read for anyone trying to make sense of the gender wars of today, and I would especially recommend it to anyone raising young girls. The book is firmly rooted in reality and gives so much more context to the sexual revolution and culture wars of the last 40 years than anything you’re getting from your Facebook newsfeed today.
Ashley's message is this: men and women are different, biological sex is real, and embracing and understanding that difference is what gives us the ability to work toward real, authentic equality for women. The book is more than bathroom policies at Target. It is thoughtful, grounded in careful research, and easy to read. Read it even if (especially if) you’ve made up your mind on the gender issues of today. Our daughters and sons deserve to know the whole story.
