Abstract:

What is life actually like for the invisible majority of mothers who work because they must, caught between the media myth of superwoman and Moral Majority critics telling them to go home? The Invisible Woman is a probing exposé of the war now being waged by right-wing religious sects to undermine the freedom of women and to redefine the family in authoritarian nineteenth-century terms. Even more alarming, however, is the author's investigation into the underlying economic motivation behind anti-ERA right -to-life forces. Shirley Rogers Radl unveils the marriage between fanatical religious groups and the business interests that support them. A new baby boom means increased sales. Zero population growth and corporate health have never appeared compatible. Other disturbing questions are raised by this important book : Why do right-wing politicians oppose funds for child abuse and battered wives? How can powerful women of the new right, such as Phyllis Schlafly or Mormon women, reconcile their careers and their beliefs? No reader, at least no who cares about the relationships between men and women, the well-being of children, or the fate of the environment, will remain complacent.--From cover
