More than twenty-five years after Susan Faludi anatomized it, the backlash against women is still going strong. Everywhere we turn, women are abandoning feminism, with the unlikeliest suspects detonating anti-feminist bombs. Whether pop icons or working mothers, it's women who are often leading the charge to send feminism to its grave: supporting anti-feminist politicians, backing lawsuits to silence victims of campus rape, participating in the vitriolic anti-women-in-technology movement, and serving on the frontlines of the fight to end reproductive rights.
F-bomb takes readers on a witty, insightful, and deeply fascinating journey into today's anti-feminist inverse. Visiting the frontlines of the new gender wars, Lauren McKeon explores generational attitudes, debates over inclusiveness, and differing views on the intersections of race, class, and gender. If women aren't connecting with feminism, what's wrong with it? And what will it take for gender equality to prevail?
