The Right Women
by Elinor Burkett
When Elinor Burkett phoned me to ask if we could get together for an interview, she described herself as a liberal feminist, as she does in this book and for which she makes no apologies. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about sharing with her my beliefs on conservatism in general and feminism in particular. But as you'll notice, if you read her book, she was terrificly open-minded and unwilling to flatly dismiss my position, as well as those of the other women she interviewed. The book is a fabulous read, not just for a better understanding of why some women reject the -ism's normally applied to them, but for Burkett's well-articulated reactions to women on the right. ~S.H.
