Among liberal thinkers, there is an optimistic belief that men and women
are on a cultural journey toward equality - in the workplace, on the
street, and in the home. But observation and evidence both tell us that
in many ways this progress has stopped - and in some cases even
reversed. In "The End of Equality", renowned feminist Beatrix Campbell
argues that even as the patriarchy has lost some of its legitimacy, new
inequalities are emerging in our culture.
We are living, Campbell writes, in an era of neopatriarchy in which violence has proliferated; body anxiety and self-hatred have flourished; rape is committed with impunity; sex trafficking thrives; and the struggle for equal pay is at an end. After four decades observing society, Campbell still speaks of the long-sought goal of gender equality. But now she calls for a new revolution.
