The Way Home: Beyond Feminism, Back to Reality PDF é A former radical feminist speaks to the heart and mind of every married woman who seeks to be godly Moving beyond feminism back to reality, this book is an affirmation of biblical womanhood This book was life changing for me Powerful Rings of truth Mary Pride said aloud so many things I had been thinking for years, and a lot of things I hadn t thought of, but should and now do Great read for new homeschoolers and for young women contemplating careers vs rearing their own children. I have to give this better than one star because Pride framed her argument in a way that made sense and helped me with my undergrad capstone paper That said, she certainly did little to sway my perspectives on feminism Using sarcastic and condescending tones along with alarmist language and flawed science does little to educate feminists on the perceived errors of their ways This book will appeal to a very particular i.e politically conservative, fundamentally religious, and gender essent I have to give this better than one star because Pride framed her argument in a way that made sense and helped me with my undergrad capstone paper That said, she certainly did little to sway my perspectives on feminism Using sarcastic and condescending tones along with alarmist language and flawed science does little to educate feminists on the perceived errors of their ways This book will appeal to a very particular i.e politically conservative, fundamentally religious, and gender essentialist audience and no one else I read this book for novel research I want to give it five stars, because I found it so utterly hilarious But it s a self help book, and meant to be serious.
