Hating Women: America's Hostile Campaign Against the Fairer Sex : For anyone who has ever wondered where our popular culture is taking us, Hating Women is at once an electrifying social commentary and a clarion call for change. In Hating Women, Shmuley Boteach, the passionate social critic and relationship guru, examines an alarming trend of misogyny in our popular culture, and laments that women themselves are playing into the hands of the money-hungry, morally bankrupt, sex-obsessed culture that is exploiting them as the ultimate cheap commodity. For example, he points to the popularity of a whole slew of reality television shows that have saturated our culture with what he deems the four vulgar archetypes of women - the Greedy Gold Digger, the Publicity-Seeking Prostitute, the Brainless Bimbo, and the Backstabbing Bitch - and their equally offensive male counterparts - the Crotch-Scratcher, the Harem Gatherer, the Selfish Spouse, and the Porn Addict. Misogyny, in the guise of entertainment, is reaching a fever pitch, but Boteach envisions a way to correct this downward spiral and revive the timeless feminine ideals of nobility, dignity, grace, and inner strength.
