You have to give the author credit for her bravery in being one of the first to tackle an important but taboo subject You can read throughout the book that she expects to be mercilessly attacked for writing it Some parts of the book are stronger than others, but it is worth reading for those parts I wish she gave suggestions for dealing with the problems, but perhaps there aren t many solutions. Parts of this book are heart breaking and parts are very lif affirming Chesler impartially outlines problems in women s relationships without condemming or sinking into mysoginistic language She is merely describing what ocurrs everyday in Western society from what she has personally observed This book is one of the truest descriptions of the human condition that I have ever read. I ve had this book for a while and never really finished it Recently, due to not understanding some of the women in my life, I picked it up again hoping that it would give me some new insights about my female relationships Boy did it ever I think this is a must read for any woman and I would go as far as to say that it should be required reading for all females ESPECIALLY those who do not like other women, are cunt haters or do not have close female friends If you are over women s hostility to other women then this book is the perfect read. It really is a no brainer members of a social group with limited power will undermine and manipulate other members within that social group in order to achieve power, even if the power achieved is of no substance This is achieved through preying upon weaknesses and manipulation and passive aggressive behavior.Having been on the receiving end of predatory and passive aggressive female behavior in various contexts throughout my life I can most certainly identify with this It s spot on So are her observations about group dynamics and power The author has a strong argument but she could further strengthen it by cutting back on the qualitative data a bit.As a social scientist this piece of research would have been compelling for me had the author provided quantitative data to balance out the personal stories and insight I have plenty of personal anecdotes that I could offer which support the author s thesis and which support my disinclination to trust other women, whether they be feminist or not However I also acknowledge that such experiences are subject to my own interpretation As researchers we observe social phenomena but rarely offer solutions This is another piece of research which does just that It s frustrating but not at all unusual. This book a lot of effort to read, but it was worthy.It shows a lot of the character of women that s usually hidden, almost taboo to talk about directly It helps understand women a bit , show some very bad stuff, some extremely weird, some eye opening.It s also a great book on group dynamics and somewhat on character assassination This book changed everything for me It is the bible for anyone who wants to read the most fundamental and first, groundbreaking work on what women do to each other It was part of my research for my own book, and nobody raised the issue like Phyllis Chesler did. This is a feminist book that deals with tricky subject for most feminists hostility between women The normal acceptable topic is men s nastiness towards women, but then, it s too easy I mean anybody can criticise men, they are asking for it, poor things only joking Phyllis Chesler is no slacker and goest straight to the core little girls bullying other girls female colleagues at work sticking to men in their attempt undermine other women mothers, out of best intentions and care, and love, driving their daughters to medication and therapy by constantly criticising, belittling and setting idiotically high expectations of them.It s all tough shit, I tell ya What bothers me personally is, okay, some unenlightened sisters can still be mean to each other out of ignorance and weakness, but feminists themselves especially academic feminists whom Phylllis knows can be too difficult towards each other as well, as illustrated by the author As if they cannot do away without squabbling and accusing each other of lack of support stealing their ideas not acknowledging someone in their books etc Author s explanation is that women tend to have unreasonably high expectations of other women and when they fail, those women feel betrayed From my personal experience, I tend to be forgiving towards women and don t ask much from them, and therefore less likely to be dissapointed by them than by men. Not what I was expecting Didn t realize the author was a psychotherapist or maybe I would have expected it The Kleinian infant seems to find me wherever I go, to my increasing disbelief Why do real live adults with careers seriously believe that literal babies really want to EAT THEIR MOMS How is this a serious idea Has anyone ever met a baby They don t even know where they are This is the SECOND time in ONE month that I ve been reading a disappointing book with ever diminishing enthusiasm, only to discover halfway through that its feminist author thinks it s very possible that babies fear maternal retaliation for fantasized sadistic devouring Cmon I can buy that women sometimes feel like their babies want to cannibalize them Why not just say that Isn t that enough It s also wild to argue that female female aggression may be inherited as opposed to at least in large part a response to the pressures and perverse incentive systems of male supremacy because it s present in other great apes Hello They have monkey patriarchy Maybe it s innate, maybe it isn t, but you can t really tell unless they stop getting monkey patriarchy d She s right that women are competitive and aggressive with each other but often don t want to acknowledge it That point, while sound, was not worth reading the rest of the book to hear This was a 491 page book and that was the only part I liked, and honestly, I m a pretty good sport Don t tell me babies want to eat their moms.
