CHSS Faculty Publish New Books

Modern MisogynyTwo faculty members in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences (CHSS) have recently released books in their respective research fields.

Professor of psychology Kristin Anderson wrote "Modern Misogyny: Anti-Feminism in a Post-Feminist Era," which was published by the Oxford University Press. An exploration of the nature, function, and implications of modern anti-feminism in the United States, the book presents the argument that gender equality has not been fully achieved. "Modern Misogyny" emphasizes recent social moves from feminist activism to individualism, consumerism, and self-empowerment. Anderson challenges the assumption that feminism is unnecessary and examines the function and potential of feminism in women's lives.
