Female Erasure - What You Need To Know About Gender Politics' War On Woman, the Female Sex, and Human Rights
48 Women's Voices Explore Sexism Disguised as Progressive Politics
Female Erasure exposes the current trend of gender identity politics as a continuation of female erasure and silencing as old as patriarchy itself.
A timely perspective! Gender identity politics and profits from an emerging medical transgenderism industry for children, teens, and adults are inhibiting our ability to have meaningful discussions about sex, gender, changing laws that have provided sex-based protections for women and girls, and the re-framing of language referring to females as a distinct biological class.

"In my introduction to the anthology, I suggest that origins of female erasure in Western culture was propagated by the framing myth of Adam and Eve, and continues to affect a majority of people on our planet, regardless of whether an individual practices a religion based on this mythology."
