The Family in America
Carlson critiques the growth of the feminist movement with new research. It was found that many recent studies conflict with the parts of the feminist agenda. Studies show that breast feeding, the nuclear family, and marriage provide concrete benefits for parents and children. Anthropological research has also shown these patterns of positive gender cooperation within the family to pre-date man's ability to walk erect. He criticizes the feminist movement for sacrificing the health and well being of women and children for the sake of rigid gender equality.
