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.
