What has made women unhappy in the last decade? Faludi writes 'is not their equality' - which they don't yet have - but the rising pressure to halt, even worse, women's quest for that equality.
"Faludi uses her dazzling investigative powers to zap the smug detractors of feminism, the hypocrites, backsliders, and antifeminists. The result is a rich and juicy read, informed by powerful logic and moral clarity" (Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed)
"Persuasive, fair, entertaining, wonderfully informed, diverting" (Fay Weldon Daily Mail)
"The backlash against women is real. This is the book we need to understand it, to struggle through the battle fatigue and to keep going" (Alice Walker)
"As ground-breaking in its own way as its two important predecessors, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex and Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, Faludi's book is just as gripping" (Newsweek)
"Recommended as essential reading for both sexes" (Today)
