Is There a Specifically Feminine Spirituality?: An Exploration of Edith Stein’s Thesis - Kathleen Curran Sweeney

During her university years, Edith Stein (now St Theresa Benedicta of the Cross) held a strongly pro-feminist view of “femininity”, and as a professional woman she appreciated the gains made for women who wished to enter fields dominated by men.   Read more...

Islam’s original feminist - Robert Fulford

Letter to a Young Girl - Alice von Hildebrand

Life: A 'Dangerous' Choice - Colleen Carroll Campbell

Super Bowl Sunday epitomizes everything radical feminists once loved to loathe: violent aggression celebrated as spectator sport, male-only competition that relegates women to scantily-clad supporting roles on the sidelines, and boorish commercials using women as high-paid props to sell men beer.   Read more...

Men and Women - David Warren

It was the present pope who wrote what remains I think the clearest analysis of the problems we face in restoring some balance to a society that has demeaned fatherhood and exalted in its place not motherhood but a scheme for the "empowerment" of women.   Read more...

Ms Discovers Motherhood: Ann Crittenden on mothers and choices - Kathryn Lopez

Having decided to resign from the New York Times in order to raise her infant son, Crittenden found herself, like many feminists, faced with a shocker. Motherhood is actually important, enjoyable even.  Read more...

Of Pillars and Spores: The Genius of Woman - Sister Renee Mirkes

Pillars and spores are images used by Edith Stein (1891-1942) in one of her essays on women. The woman who becomes or is becoming what she is meant to be, Stein explains, is “like a pillar to which many fasten themselves, thereby attaining a firm footing.” Further, women who are on their way to becoming whole persons can, in turn, help others to realize their personal fulfillment. In this way, Stein argues, women are like “healthy, energetic spores supplying healthy energy” to all whom God puts in their path. The metaphors of pillar and spore provide easy to remember associational images of how Stein defines the constitutive nature, vocation, and genius of woman.  Read more...

Persistent Myths in Feminist Scholarship - Christina Hoff Sommers

"Harder to kill than a vampire." That is what the sociologist Joel Best calls a bad statistic. But, as I have discovered over the years, among false statistics the hardest of all to slay are those promoted by feminist professors.  Read more...

Rescuing Feminism from the Feminists - a book review - Mary Ann Glendon

A new, more responsive feminism does seem to be gaining ground. Unlike its predecessor, the emerging feminism of the nineties attends to the real-life needs and aspirations of a wide range of women. It wrestles with harmonizing family life and employment in world where a balance struck either way is risky. It sees women and men as partners rather than antagonists in the quest for better ways to love and work. The new feminism is inclusive rather than polarizing; open-minded rather than dogmatic. It recognizes that the fates of men, women, and children, privileged and poor alike, are inextricably intertwined.  Read more...

Sentiment and Sentimentality: Woman’s Choice - Mary Shivanandan

Women’s responsive and receptive nature, as wife and mother, is expressed by empathy, sensitivity and openness to others. This exposes her to the temptation to place affection (sentiment) above reason and objective truth. Only when she acknowledges the fullness of the image of God in herself and places her own integrity and obedience to God’s law above sentiment does she avoid the destructive path of sentimentality.  Read more...

Should we have sex on the brain? - Norman Doidge

Some government programs are now offering dollars to universities, in the form of salaries and grants, if they hire women, and only women, for professorial science positions. But Dr. Doreen Kimura, one of the world leaders in the field of sex differences and cognition, points out there is "no evidence" for systemic discrimination against women in science. Recent neurological, hormonal, and psychological studies argue that men and women differ not only in their physical attributes, but cognitively in how they solve intellectual problems leading them to have different occupational preferences and skills.  Read more...
