Philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers's target in Who Stole Feminism? How Women Have Betrayed Women is “gender feminism.” Her aim is to convince us that gender feminists are anti-intellectual opportunists who deliberately spread lies about the incidence of date rape , domestic battery and about the general state of male-female relations in America , thereby generating fear and resentment of men , all so that they may secure vast amounts of government funding and high-paying jobs in the academy . Because gender feminists are condescending to and contemptuous of the “average woman,” they lack a grass-roots constituency . Nonetheless, they are powerful enough to be feared. Gender feminists have managed to dupe the U.S. Congress , and an otherwise sceptical press literally eats out of their hands . Gender feminism is also a leading cause of the weakening of the American university , and has “made the American campus a less happy place”
