Philosophy professor Christina Sommers exposes a disturbing development: how a group of zealots, claiming to speak for all women, are promoting a dangerous new agenda that threatens our most cherished ideals and sets women against men in all spheres of life. In case after case, Sommers shows how these extremists have propped up their arguments with highly questionable but well-funded research, presenting inflammatory and often inaccurate information and stifling any semblance of free and open scrutiny. Trumpeted as orthodoxy, the resulting “findings” on everything from domestic abuse to economic bias to the supposed crisis in girls’ self-esteem perpetuate a view of women as victims of the “patriarchy.” Who Stole Feminism? is a call to arms that will enrage or inspire, but cannot be ignored.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sommers’ voice is brashly confrontational; her approach is both investigative and polemical. But one need not accept her politics to appreciate the best of her book: its critical reporting.” Washington Post
“Ms. Sommers simply lines up her facts and shoots one bull’s-eye after another.” Wall Street Journal
“Likely to be the most talked-about manifesto since Susan Faludi’s Backlash.” Newsweek
“Christina Hoff Summers has done something lethally deflating to the pretensions of the shriller sort of feminists: she looked at their evidence and found it lacking.” Los Angeles Daily News
“An incisive description of the heartbreaking violence done social science by polemicists who confuse righteousness with rightness.” Lionel Tiger, author of The Pursuit of Pleasure
