Elisabeth Badinter, a leading French feminist, has warned the green movement is threatening decades of improvements in gender equality by forcing women to give up their jobs and become earth mothers.
Mrs Badinter claims a “holy reactionary alliance” of green politicians, breast-feeding militants, “back to nature” feminists and child psychologists is turning Frenchwomen into slaves to green “fads” like re-usable nappies and organic food.
In her new book, Conflit, la Femme et la Mere (Conflict, the Woman and the Mother), Mrs Badinter contends that this politically correct cabal is burdening mothers with intolerable guilt unless they stay at home and breast-feed for as long as possible.

What about wacko Dr. Sears and his advice for mothers to be the best parent they can be by practicing attachment parenting? Is he not suggesting that women stay out of the work force? Of course he is and so did everyone before him that founded and added to attachment theory.

"that I consider to be male dominated, that do not appear to be in the best interest of women, but rather in the best interest of men- "quiver-full""
That's a good one. Let's face it, we still live in a male-dominated world.
