The Miseducation of Women

by James Tooley

The Miseducation of Women Synopsis

To what extent has feminism benefited women? To what extent have women really been liberated? James Tooley argues that the implication of many women's testimony is that feminism so far has failed to deliver the promised benefits and has even in some ways proved harmful. Bringing together many women's voices, from Bridget Jones to Simone de Beauvoir, he provides a radical rethinking for feminism and sexual politics in the 21st century.

The Miseducation of Women Press Reviews

This book is designed to create a stir. It is carefully wrought to engage readers who might be coming from very different directions....I disagreed passionately with much of Tooley's thesis...but he does engage the reader.
