Book Review: Papal Teaching on Private Property – 1891 to 1981
Where feminism teaches that
- Men and women tend to behave differently because of social conditioning, not because there are innate biological and psychological differences between them.
- The chief reason women have been less often represented in the first ranks of public achievement in scholarship, the arts, politics, and war, is that in every human society of which we have evidence, throughout all of recorded history, they were repressed by a patriarchal power structure maintained through force and indoctrination.
- Because large numbers of children in a family constitute both a barrier to the advancement of women and a threat to our ecology, small families should be the cultural norm.
- It is unjust that the consequences of sexual behavior are biologically unequal for men and women. As much as possible, those consequences must be equalized through medical technology and reformed cultural attitudes.
- To find meaning in their lives, women should look first to their careers, rather than to their role as lifegivers, culture bearers, nurturers, and educators of the next generation of human beings.
- Women who regard themselves as mothers first are wasting their education and smothering their talents by staying home to raise their children.
