Weekend reading on feminism

If you are looking for something to read this weekend, that demonstrates the way society's views on feminism are shifting, Liberated and Unhappy is a very interesting opinion piece from the New York Times last week, written by Ross Douthat, commenting on The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness, a recent research paper by Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers (29 pages long but quite fascinating - somehow I downloaded it for free, but it looks like you may now need to pay to access it unfortunately). Here is the second last paragraph of that paper:
Finally, the changes brought about through the women's movement may have decreased women's happiness. The increased opportunity to succeed in many dimensions may have led to an increased likelihood of believing that one's life is not measuring up. Similarly, women may now compare their lives to a broader group, including men, and find their lives more likely to come up short in this assessment. Or women may simply find the complexity and increased pressure in their modern lives to have come at the cost of happiness.
You can then read the comment on this article on the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood website, and also on Carolyn McCulley's own website.
