1-Prone to Violence by
Prone to Violence is based on Pizzey’s interviews with more than a hundred families that came to her refuge for help (Erin Pizzey pioneered one of the first women and children’s refuges in the world). Unlike so much that is written about domestic violence today, it does not start from the position that domestic violence is all about the oppression of women by men. Instead, Pizzey examines objectively and in some detail the circumstances that have led to the violence in the families that she encountered. What emerges is a complex but very credible picture of violence in families having its roots in the failure of many families to provide adequate parenting for their children. The violence then passes from generation to generation as inadequate and disturbed children grow up and become parents themselves. Pizzey suggests that in some extreme cases men and women develop a need for violence as the only currency in which they can express their feelings about others.
2-The Flipside of Feminism byand
This book should be handed out at schools as essential reading! Informative analysis of where feminism went wrong. There is so much practical wisdom in this book pertaining to hard work, family, education, business and relationships. It breaks down the myths and lies told to young women by feminists about what a real woman should be, why there is so many women with aching hearts and unfulfilled dreams today.
3-Who stole Feminism? by
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. She debunks many myths that parts of our society have swallowed whole heartedly. She dispels many of the notions that we learned in graduate education school that seemed not to apply in reality. For example, that female students were discriminated against or were doing less well than their male counterparts. Sommers shows how these extremists (feminists) 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. Trumpeted as orthodoxy, the resulting “findings” on everything from rape to domestic abuse to economic bias to the supposed crisis in girls’ self-esteem perpetuate a view of women as victims of the “patriarchy”.
4- The manipulated man by
Esther Vilar’s classic polemic about the relationship between the sexes caused a sensation on its first publication. In her introduction to this revised edition, Vilar maintains that very little has changed. Vilar’s perceptive, thought-provoking and often very funny look at the battle between the sexes has earned her severe criticism and even death threats by feminists. But Vilar’s intention is not misogynous: she maintains that only if women and men look at their place in society with honesty, will there be any hope for change.Esther holds nothing back in her findings on how men are manipulated and her blunt delivery may be shocking also makes it an addictive and valuable read. She makes an interesting case for men being baited into marriage – as a trapped but self-validating life course. She further extensively explains how society and even religion directs men into marriage and servitude to women as the only worthwhile life choice. Whether you agree or not this is a powerful read and a great antidote to the border line misandrous feminist nonsense pumped out in mainstream media.
5- Men on Strike: Why Men are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream – and Why it Matters by
Smith offers a useful contribution to the gender-equality debate. Society has become anti-male. Feminists have created it. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going “on strike.” They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this “man-child” phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility simply because they can. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them? As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren’t dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development. They are instead acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century. Men are starting to fight back against the backlash. Men on Strike explains their battle cry.
6- Men or Women: Who are the Victims? by
Throughout history there have always been groups seeking to turn the powers of government to their own advantage. Today, one frequently employed strategy is to claim victim status for members of a group, and then insist on “rights” to be guaranteed by the state. However these “rights” are better understood as legally sanctioned privileges which have more in common with the preferments awarded by pre-democracy monarchs to their favourites. The contributors to this book ask if women are really “victims” of a male conspiracy in the workplace and the home, as some feminist critics have claimed. Erin Pizzey, the founder of the first refuge for women and children who were victims of domestic violence, describes the way in which her standing in the international feminist movement declined when she began to point out that men, as well as women, can be victims of such violence.
7- No votes for women by
No Votes for Women explores the complicated history of the anti-suffrage movement in New York State by delving into the stories of women who opposed the expansion of voting rights to women. Susan Goodier finds that conservative women who fought against suffrage encouraged women to retain their distinctive feminine identities as protectors of their homes and families, a role they felt was threatened by the imposition of masculine political responsibilities. Anti-feminists admire these women for not only fighting for what they thought was right (and really only when forced to do so by the suffragists), but for also putting the fight aside for patriotic service when WWI began.
8- Feminist fantasies by
No assault has been more ferocious than feminism’s forty-year war against women. And no battlefield leader has been more courageous than Phyllis Schlafly. In a new book of dispatches from the front, feminism’s most potent foe exposes the delusions and hypocrisy behind a movement that has cheated millions of women out of their happiness, health, and security.
Phyllis Schlafly was one of the first to recognize that feminism-like other destructive ideologies-is at odds with human nature. So as the rest of the intellectual elite fell compliantly into line, she took up the fight for the right to be a woman. Feminist Fantasies is the inspiring story of that fight.
