In this article, Hoover Research Fellow Mary Eberstadt focuses on four myths that seem to still be prevalent today (especially by those with a certain political agenda) and she deftly knocks down each one. The four she identifies are:
- The "war on women" consists of tyrannical men arrayed against oppressed but pluckily united women.
- If it weren't for the Catholic Church, no one would be talking about contraception anyway.
- The "social issues" are unwanted artifacts of a primitive religious past that will eventually just fade away.
- The sexual revolution has made women happier.
