“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.”
