Modern Misogyny: Anti-Feminism in a Post-Feminist Era

Used book in Good Condition. Pundits and politicians often opine on the irrelevance of feminism and the women's movement today. These sentiments make up modern anti-feminism. Post-feminist discourse encourages young women to believe that they were born into a free society, so if they experience discrimination, it is an individual, isolated problem that may even be their own fault.

Finally, it takes a fresh look at the positive role that feminism plays in today's "post-feminist" era, and how feminism does and might function in women's lives. In fact, women have been so successful in achieving equality, the argument goes, it is now men who currently are at risk of becoming irrelevant and unnecessary.

It interrogates the assumption that feminism is unnecessary, that women have achieved equality, and therefore those women who do insist on being feminists want to get ahead of men.
