Abstract:

"The standard feminist line - faithfully reiterated by the mainstream media - is that the deck is stacked against women in employment, education, politics, healthcare, and virtually every institution except the Girl Scouts. But in reality, most women earn more than men, female poverty is decreasing and life expectancy is increasing, and women are excellent in education and in the professions." "Bernard's easy-to-read book is the source for the facts about how women are prospering in America today. Condensing a mountain of reliable but cumbersome information, she reveals the surprisingly upbeat picture of women's lives today. Her graphs, text boxes, and charts allow anyone to understand her statistics."--Jacket.
