“Feminism: Where Are We Now?” Part 2 with Suzanne Venker, Meg Meeker, M.D. and Phyllis Wallace

Feminism promised to deliver and it did! Women have more freedom, education and power. But, research reports, they also have less happiness. Ok, we have more money, we’re liberated by the hook-up culture and even have tons of freedom from childcare. Why then are we less happy? Suzanne Venker and Dr. Meg Meeker reveal the unsettling flipside of feminism.”

Suzanne is a former middle school teacher turned keen observer of all things female, especially family! Her husband and two children support her writing habit. She’s appeared on CNN, FOX and C-Span and written for Human Events and the New York Post. Her first book was 7 Myths of Working Mothers, about why children and most careers just don’t mix. She speaks about her latest book co-authored with Phyllis Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know and Men Can’t Say.

Then Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatric and adolescent physician of 25 years, talks about the secret of balancing a career and family. Dr. Meeker is one of today’s most trusted family advocates. She and her husband, also a physician, have four grown children. The Woman to Woman® website archives have three previous shows on her national bestselling books, Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, Boys Should Be Boys and The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers. Dr. Meeker has seen firsthand, professionally and personally, how the feminist movement impacts women and families. She has recommendations for women caught up in more “freedoms” than they might want, all things considered!

I wrap the show with my comments, “Woman to Woman,” on how I enjoy being a woman more than ever and why. And, of course, a story or two about how God is in all of that! Do you feel that way, too?
