How Are Women Doing?
New York Review of Books, v49 n6 p63-66 Apr 2002
Reviews five books on how the politics of choice affects adoption, abortion, and welfare; Roe v. Wade; causes and consequences of nonmarital fertility; how misguided feminism harms young males; and the myth of frailty. Suggests that many of the issues raised will receive national notice if recent legislation requiring all states to test students on academic skills shows girls outperforming boys. (SM)
