Summary
In this book "Dowd explains why men may be biologically unfit for high office and how alpha women can be successful in the short term, but typically end up victims. In these days of Stepford housewives, best-selling books on how to lure a man into marriage and a return to 1950s values, was the feminist movement a cruel joke played on women leaving them desperate and dateless? Dowd argues that the feminist revolution lasted a nanosecond but the backlash is still going on ... having it all now is less about empowerment and equality than about flirting and being rescued. How did we go from 'you go girl' to 'you go lie down girl' or from a woman's right to choose to a woman's right to Botox? An intelligent, witty and singular look at the gender tangle that holds us all." -- back cover
Summary
In a humorous look at the world of sexual politics, the author explores the changing dynamics of gender relations in the modern world, covering such topics as online dating and the American obsession with aging and appearance
