Author Suzanne Venker believes that a submissive wife who gives up on her dreams for marriage and motherhood is the best way to maintain a lasting union.
In her new book titled 'How To Choose a Husband', she gives a 12-step guide on how to seek and then hook a man in today's "post-feminist" culture, which is apparently preparing young women for perpetual singledom.
"Our post-feminist culture is toxic. It celebrates women at the exclusion of men; it ignores the needs of children; and it glorifies the single life... Sadly, more women than not will allow this poison to invade their bodies and even ruin their lives," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
The 45-year-old married mother-of-two believes young women's mothers, who drummed in the ideology that being an independent woman, with equal pay, was something to strive for, are to blame.
"(Mothers) did their daughters a great disservice. They were wrong to tell their daughters they could never rely on a man," she added.
She said that women don't make as much as men precisely because they don't work the same number of hours.
Women continue to take years off the job to care for their children or aging parents or to live a more balanced life. Feminists leave that part out, she said.
