In her book, subtitled How Women Have Betrayed Women, philosophy professor Christina Sommers has exposed a disturbing development: how a group of zealots, claiming to speak for all women, are promoting a dangerous agenda that threatens cherished ideals and sets women against men in all spheres of life. In case after case, Sommers shows how these extremists 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, their resulting findings on everything from rape, domestic abuse, and economic bias to the supposed crisis in girls' self-esteem perpetuate a view of women as victims of the "patriarchy."
