Feminine Mistake, The

by Bennetts, Leslie

THE FEMININE MISTAKE begins from the premise that feminism has failed the current generation of women. The baby-boomers who succeeded at rewarding careers while raising their families know how satisfying their lives have been, but today’s young women often only see the downside of balancing work and family. They think the struggle is too difficult, and they don’t foresee the consequences of retiring from the fray. As a result, too many of today’s younger women are making choices that will jeopardize their futures. Bennetts stresses that it is a challenge to do both, but a welcome one. In riveting interviews with a broad range of women across both red and blue states, The Feminine Mistake will explore both the long-term risks of economic dependency and the intellectual, emotional and financial benefits of self-sufficiency. Their stories will inspire younger women to embrace the challenge of figuring out who they are and what they want to do with their lives, instead of giving up and going home.
