"The Myth of Male Power dealt much more with the political issues, the legal issues, sexual harassment, date rape, women who kill, and those issues were very much more interfaced with the agendas of feminism"

About this Quote
In his book The Myth of Male Power, Warren Farrell takes a look at the political and legal concerns that are at the forefront of the feminist program. He looks at subjects such as unwanted sexual advances, date rape, and women who kill, and how these issues are linked to the feminist movement. Farrell argues that men are often seen as the oppressors in these scenarios, but that the truth is much more complicated. He believes that men are often victims of the same problems, which the power characteristics between males and females are a lot more nuanced than they are typically depicted. He argues that both males and females require to be knowledgeable about the power characteristics at play in order to create a more fair society.
