About the Author

E. Badinter, Philosopher and Writer

Translated by J.Borossa


"Badinter's incisive essay appears quite compelling when set against the alternative: a diffuse, muddled culture of resentment."
Times Literary Supplement

"This book is an event. Elisabeth Badinter is one of the intellectuals who has worked tirelessly to build the theoretical edifice which has nourished French feminism. For thirty years she has been part of the women's liberation movement, without ever belonging to any of its cliques. Now she protests forcefully against the way it has evolved."

"In Dead End Feminism, Elisabeth Badinter attacks the new moral order that certain proponents of feminism have claimed to establish in the last couple of decades. Having provided French feminism with its most solid intellectual foundations, she knows what she's talking about. Parity, pornography, prostitution, sexual harassment: Badinter carries out a veritable demolition of received ideas in a vigorous and well argued work."
Le Figaro

"With her cutting intelligence and devastating turn of phrase, Elisabeth Badinter will make the guardians of the faith grit their teeth. She runs the risk of betraying her camp; but it is her camp that has betrayed the cause of emancipation, which is the real concern of both women and men."
Le Nouvel Observateur
