Description - Hating Women by Shmuel Boteach
serial/extract in national newspaper; reviews/features in national newspapers; features in women's magazines e.g. "Cosmo", "Marie Claire". Shmuley Boteach, the social commentator and outspoken relationship guru, shares his grave concerns about society's growing contempt for women especially in America. Turn on the television: Reality TV shows, such as "Average Joe" boost their ratings by showing attractive women in competition for one man, one man's money, or both. On "A Quest for True Love", these women quickly devolve into a pit of vipers and millions of people tune in each week for more. During commercial breaks, women are objectified to sell beer, cars, and every other product under the sun. Flip on the radio: women are bitches, whores, and gold diggers, at least if you listen to the rap lyrics pumping out into our mass consciousness. And female pop stars like Britney and Madonna, says Boteach, have pushed the envelope past provocative and into the downright pornographic. Teen girls follow their lead, and standards for how women should be treated plummet.
Greedy gold diggers, brainless bimbos, publicity prostitutes, and backstabbing bitches, are these the stereotypes that we want our sons and daughters bombarded by as they grow up? "Hating Women" offers a vision of how this downward spiral can be corrected along with a strong argument for why it absolutely must.
