Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch with Science, Love, and Common Sense

Author: Mona Charen
Publisher: Crown Forum • June 26, 2018 • 320 pages

In this smart, deeply necessary critique, Mona Charen unpacks the ways feminism fails us at home, in the workplace, and in our personal relationships–by promising that we can have it all, do it all, and be it all. Here, she upends the feminist agenda and the liberal conversation surrounding women’s issues by asking tough and crucial questions, such as:

  • Did women’s full equality require the total destruction of the nuclear family?
  • Did it require a sexual revolution that would dismantle traditions of modesty, courtship, and fidelity that had characterized relations between the sexes for centuries?
  • Did it cause the broken dating culture and the rape crisis on our college campuses?
  • Did it require war between the sexes that would deem men the “enemy” of women?
  • Have the strides of feminism made women happier in their home and work life. (The answer is no.)

Sex Matters tracks the price we have paid for denying sex differences and stoking the war of the sexes–family breakdown, declining female happiness, aimlessness among men, and increasing inequality. Marshaling copious social science research as well as her own experience as a professional as well as a wife and mother, Mona Charen calls for a sexual ceasefire for the sake of women, men, and children.
