This would certainly counter the "Women's Studies" crap that college students are spoonfed these days! Personally, I think feminism as it is today is dying -- the feminists just don't know it yet. I think that far from "liberating" women, they have enslaved a generation of women to the idea that a woman cannot be happy and fulfilled as a woman unless she jettisons everything feminine and adopts all the worst male characteristics (chauvenism, ruthless competitiveness, obsession with sex, workaholism, etc. -- as opposed to good characteristics like strength of character, protectiveness, spiritual leadership, etc.). I think many women who adopted this view are now realizing that they've been had. I bought into some of it when I was a young woman, but realized soon after a "born again" experience that there is something very strong, holy, and fulfilling about feminine characteristics. I am happy to be a stay-at-home mom, and yes, SUBMIT to my husband as he submits to Christ, and the feminists who make fun of me can go jump in a lake! :-)


Well said, Laura.

Thank you for your post! You have expressed it perfectly. I wish I had awakened earlier to the ugliness of the so-called feminist dream, which turned out to be a nightmare. I'm very honored now by the NCR review and hope that many people will read about what happened to me and countless other women as we fell prey to the treacherous lure of feminism.
