Righting Feminism

Conservative Women and American Politics

Ronnee Schreiber

Based on interviews with colorful conservative activists and extensive analyses of organizational documents,Righting Feminism offers a new way of understanding the unlikely intersection of women's activism and conservative politics in America today. Schreiber amply illustrates how conservative activists are often the beneficiaries of the very feminist politics they oppose. Yet just as importantly, she demolishes two widely believed truisms: that conservatism holds no appeal to women and that modern conservatism is hostile to the very notion of women's activism.
