"Undercurrents in the Conservative Tide"
by Arnold Beichman
Harvard Professor Ruth Wisse sees the women's liberation movement as the
problem for conservatives in trying "recover the family." She writes:
"Women's liberation, if not the most extreme then certainly the most
influencial neo-Marxist movement in America, has done to the American
home what communism did to the Russian economy, and most of the ruin is
irreversible. By defining relations between men and women in terms of
power and competition instead of reciprocity and cooperation, the
movement tore apart the most basic and fragile contract in human society,
the unit from which all other social institutions draw their strength."
