High-brow or downright pretentious, good PNR or sparkly vampires, I don't care about the premise so long as it entertains me.

Equality Illusion: The Truth about Women and Men Today - Kat Banyard

I'm far from what I'd call a "seasoned" feminist, but nevertheless, I'm struck at how... rigid this book is. I guess it serves the purpose, which is to provide a wake-up call for people (sexism isn't over, we need feminism, get involved) but nevertheless, it offers a really pessimistic outlook of things (at least from what I can read.) The stories are overwhelmingly sad and negative ones. There doesn't seem to be much hope from women from what you can read here.


I don't know. I'd need to re-read this later on to make a more informed opinion on this. Has anyone else felt like this, coming back to a text they used to love and realizing that it's flawed?
