Detailed Description

Contemporary feminism has sought to modify social institutions to create an androgynous society in which male and female roles are identical. The successful war feminists waged in 1960s America undermined the homemaker’s position and sought to drive her into the work force to put her on an equal footing with men. Carolyn Graglia looks at the decline of the American family since 1965 and the feminists’ role in characterising the housewife as a “parasite.”
