• "Faludi uses her dazzling investigative powers to zap the smug detractors of feminism, the hypocrites, backsliders, and antifeminists. The result is a rich and juicy read, informed by powerful logic and moral clarity"

    Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
  • "Persuasive, fair, entertaining, wonderfully informed, diverting"

    Fay Weldon, Daily Mail
  • "The backlash against women is real. This is the book we need to understand it, to struggle through the battle fatigue and to keep going"

    Alice Walker
  • "As ground-breaking in its own way as its two important predecessors, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex and Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, Faludi's book is just as gripping"

  • "Recommended as essential reading for both sexes"
