Who is responsible for murdering the wonder of womanhood? Despite what many would like to believe, “smashing the patriarchy” and promoting the ideology of feminism doesn’t empower women—it erases women. After 50 years of radical feminism our culture today cannot even define what is a woman. And still, feminists cling to their illusions of liberation. Today’s guest, Carrie Gress, punctures the myths of feminism, claiming that only a rediscovery of true womanhood can pull our society back from the brink.
