The swooning ladies of the Victorian Age and the suburban housewives of the 1950s genuinely needed to be liberated. That much is indisputable. So, First-Wave feminists held rallies for women's suffrage. Then, Second-Wave feminists marched for Prohibition, jobs and abortion.
Today, Third-Wave feminists stand firmly for nobody's quite sure what. But the modern woman - who uses psychotherapeutic drugs at a rate never before seen in history - needs liberating now more than ever. The truth is, feminists don't know what liberation is. They have led us into a dead end.
This book sets aside all stereotypes of mid-century housewives, of china-doll femininity, of Victorians fainting, or of women not allowed to think for themselves. It dismisses the pencil-skirted and stiletto-heeled executives of TV, or the brave career women in charge of their own destinies. Once those fictionalised stereotypes are out of the way, Christians can focus on real women. What did God make real women for?
