Susan Faludi, author of Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women (1992; ISBN: 0385425074) and Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man (1999). Backlash argued that the 1980s saw a backlash against feminism, especially due to the spread of negative stereotypes against career-minded women. Faludi shows that many who argue that "a women's place is at the home, looking after the kids" are hypocrites, since they (or their wives) are exactly like the women they are criticising.
