Has Modern American Feminism Failed Us?

Discussing her just-published book Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch with Science, Love, and Common Sense, author and political commentator Mona Charen takes aim at liberal assumptions around feminism and progress. She counts among feminism’s casualties 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, a wife, and a mother, she asks, is it time for a sexual ceasefire?
