The Sweeter Side of Pain

... a critical look at some modern feminist classics: Simone de Beauvoir, Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, Kate Millett, Sheila Rowbotham, Sylvia Plath, Gloria Steinem

By Siri Langholm

The author of this book takes a fresh look at a group of feminist thinkers central to the "second wave" of feminism, those who seduced the entire Western world with their visions, and licensed, in the 20th century, a powerful new agenda. Far from representing anything new, Langholm argues, the writers in question put forward some surprisingly stereotyped generalizations and images of woman.
