The Best introduction from a traditional point of view. Sep 8, 2003
Hauke, a German Catholic theologian, has for some time been on the forefront of a Catholic analysis of the feminist movement. He is very conversant with modern English-speaking femism and this book provides one of the best summaries and analyses of the subject. All the main themes are covered in great detail. This would be a good bookto read if you are reading Daly, Elizabeth Clark, Byrne, etc.
Hauke is sympathetic to the questions raised by so-called feminism, but he is by no means supportive of the majority of its conclusions. Worth reading if you are a novice to the subject or well-versed. Great all around introduction.
