Phyllis Schlafly was one of the first to recognize that radical 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.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is a book full of lies&mis representation.It either willfully misrepresents feminism or just doesnt understand it at all
Has Feminist Fantasies put you off other books in this genre?
What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The performance of the narrator is the only reason i gave the book so many stars
Do you think Feminist Fantasies needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I hope not but im sure schlafly could fill many more books full of lies
Any additional comments?
Should highlight the massive benefits of feminism or the more insideous nature of patriarchy like inherent sexism&spousal abuse

that inevitably will receive many knee-jerk reactions from politically frenzied people who have never read the thing...but the points Schlaffy makes are clear and precise. Yes, equal rights are important, but modern radical feminism is not about equal rights: it is about hating men and "the patriarchy." It is also about women having to work harder than ever, getting the blunt end of the "sexual revolution" that feminism encouraged, and having a much harder time in relationships that they are trained to despise when things just really aren't that bad most of the time. Look, read the book or don't, but don't judge it until you have turned the last page. (Also see the videos and writings of Dr. Janice Fiamengo and Karen Straughen to see the mindless hate and unfairness that often comes with modern radical feminism. Also Steven Pinker is a good source when he writes or discusses gender: he deems himself an "equality feminist" but eschews the harmful radical stuff.)

I leaned feminist in the past...now a fulfilled wife and mother. This book is true.

One of the finest books on the subject of feminism, well researched and methodically presented. This is a work of serious scholarship, but with the practical insights of a regular woman who is not blinded by the ideological adsurdities of the academic left. Everyone who values ALL people regardless of sex should read (or listen to) this book to hear how some radicals seek to divide us.

There are a few books that come along to give perspective, proper perspective, on how to see the world around you. If you are pro feminist, read this book! If you are anti-feminist, READ THIS BOOK! If you don;t know where you stand on the issue, READ THIS BOOK! Where I never even heard of Phyllis Schlafly, I found that she is a substantial pillar in the conservative movement.
It's an easy read that is really hard to put down. I found myself looking over the book @ 3 AM and realizing how this effects so many issues in every day life. No matter on what side of the issue you stand - Feminism effects YOU every single day.

Mots of what the author says make sense but why does she equates faith with family values? I am strongly atheist but that does not prevent me to feel the inequity and the bitterness of feminists. Nor
