Argues that American feminism advocates values which do not take into account some of the complexities of career, family, and sexuality faced by women and that women need to make more informed choices using factual evidence rather than ideology.

We’ve been duped.

We were raised to think we could have it all. In college we were told that men weren’t necessary. Pop culture told us that career—not family—came first. The idea of being a stay-at-home mom was for losers. And yet are we happier than our mothers or grandmothers, who grew up before women were "liberated" by the sexual revolution? For many women, the answer is no. In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Women, Sex, and Feminism, Carrie Lukas, a young career woman and new mother, sets the record straight: correcting the lies women have been told and slamming the door on the screaming harpies of NOW, feminist professors, and the rest of the bra-burners who have done so much to wreck women’s lives.

Bet your feminist teacher never told you:

* Women’s lib has "liberated" men from having to commit, "freed" women from marriage, and often "unshackled" women from having a family. * More than ever, women in their twenties and thirties live alone, are discarded by boyfriends after "living together," and are watching their biological clocks tick past the point of no return. * Women still prefer men who are breadwinners and can protect them physically.

The feminist movement is about freedom of choice, equal opportunities and equal power/representation in societal power structures. This book makes for great satire, hilariously missing all the points!

If conservative women choose to be housewives, have at it.

I always thought people were free to donate money to any party they wanted... Besides, the book is NOT about Rush Limbaugh. Read it and get to your own conclusions!

Again, I fail to understand what is wrong with the "conservative movement"... Again, read the book and make up your own mind.
