The feminists are going through one of their periodic soulsearching psychological examinations of what the women's liberation movement did or did not do for them, and why they are not happy with the result.

For years elite opinion has maintained that women are happier in marriages that represent a union of equals and where spouses share identical responsibilities in the workplace and at home.

Nations Rap UN Rapporteur on "Gender-as-Social-Construct"
A host of nations lined up in October 2009 to criticize a special report on "gender-based human rights abuses in counterterrorism measures" for pushing a notion of gender as a fluid social construct and advancing a United Nations "gay rights" document known as the Yogyakarta Principles rather than focusing on the assigned task of examining the abuse of women caught up in the global "war on terror."
