Christina Hoff Sommers On Feminists, Eradicating Men, And Campus Culture Misery

Do feminists exaggerate the oppression of women and ignore the misfortunes of men? Don’t miss Christian Hoff Sommers on the Federalist Radio Hour.

Christina Hoff Sommers studies the politics of gender and feminism as an AEI resident Scholar, and is the host of the “Factual Feminist” video series. Sommers joins Ben Domenech on this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss the current state of American feminism and its increasing intolerance and aggression.  Sommers explains concepts like the “matrix of oppression” maintained by feminists.

“When I was feminist in the ‘70s and ‘80s it was fun and about liberation,” she said. “And now it’s more about collecting grievances.”

Some factions of feminists go as far as to call for the eradication of men. “There’s so much goodness in people and if you’re going to categorize them by their gender and write them off as hateful, then you’re just missing out,” she said. “It’s just going to create a culture of misery and fear, and that’s what we are seeing on college campuses.”
