After spending many months working very hard on a new liturgy series, I thought "Why not have a pleasant, light podcast to unwind a little?"
So I called my friend and Founder of Theology of Home, Dr. Carrie Gress, and said, "How about coming on the show and talking about your new book?"
So much for unwinding.
After all, her new book is titled The End of Woman: How Smashing the Patriarchy Has Destroyed Us.
It's all about how we arrived at this culturally dangerous place in which we now find ourselves, particularly in regards to feminism and society's bloodlust for the destruction of men.
(And if you're a guy who said to himself, "Feminism? Dude, I'm out." Trust me, this topic has a massive impact on those of us who share the XY chromosomes.)
Of course, feminism is a tricky word.
Yes, we all agree that abortion-focused, radical feminism is wrong.
But what about the "rest of it"?
Because it seems that there are a lot of opinions on the various incarnations and iterations of the "feminist movement."
Can it all be separated or is there a deeper problem?
One way or the other, it's safe to say we're facing a societal crisis in regards to all of this.
So in today's episode of the Art of Catholic podcast, we're going to peel back the onion a bit and discuss the shocking backstory of feminism (and where it's all going).
Dr. Gress has done a massive amount of research into the little-known stories of the women (and men!) who shaped the movement, and its hidden roots in the French Revolution, Communism, and even the occult.
This one is what you call an "eye-opener". (I think I'm ready for some more liturgy:).
