After Words with Kate O'Beirne
Jodi Enda, former president of the Women and Journalism Symposium, covers politics, culture, and gender issues for publications including the American Prospect, Mother Jones, and Lifetime magazine.
Kate O’Beirne was interviewed by Jodi Enda about her book Women Who Make the World Worse: And How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports, published by Sentinel. In her first book, Kate O’Beirne, Washington editor of the National Review, tells her story as a combatant in the war between the sexes beginning in the 1970's when she fought against the Equal Rights Amendment. She argued that feminism has achieved its consensus goals regarding equality but that the feminist movement is now focused on goals that she considers destructive. She discussed topics including gender differences, voting preferences, marriage, sexual mores, domestic violence, abortion, education, and childcare. Ms. O’Beirne cited how she believes reality differs from the positions of leading feminists and said that feminist leaders are more concerned with their own agendas than what the majority of women really want or need.
