What are people saying about Daughters of Feminism:

​"I’m reading a few books right now and would like to recommend 2 of them. Please note: nothing I write or say is sponsored or paid for by anyone … so these are not ads, these are actual books I’m reading that I want to recommend: "Daughters of Feminism" by David Shackleton. Each chapter is written by a different woman whose unique life experience lead her to realize the importance of standing up for men issues, and guess what? The 1st chapter of this book is written by me! Other chapters are written by Karen Straughan, Janice Fiamengo, Bettina Arndt, Diana Davidson, Jasmin Newman, Suzanne McCarley, Barbara Kay, Eve Libertone and many other women I've come to know and respect. I highly recommend this book as a gift for your daughter, girlfriend or wife." Cassie Jaye, Producer of The Red Pill.

"Honest and brave: women telling their stories - I couldn't put the book down."  Erin Pizzey, founder of the world's first women's shelter.

"Daughters of Feminism is a heartfelt, powerful collection of essays by women on what's really wrong between the sexes today. Passionate, eclectic and engaged, these essays and their authors challenge conventional thinking from many perspectives, often backed by harrowing personal tales."  John Robson, National Post columnist and documentary filmmaker.

"Daughters of Feminism is almost a miracle in this age of #MeToo triumphalism, a collection of essays by women who dare to think critically about themselves as women. Most important, the authors actually care about men, and not only about the men in the own lives. No matter how remote the possibility of inter-sexual dialogue seems right now, these essays offer hope for its eventual realization."  Paul Nathanson, co-author of "Spreading Misandry; The Teaching of Contempt for Men in Popular Culture" and other books on misandry.

"Introduced with his own wisdom and passion, David Shackleton here presents an ocean of truths rarely expressed - the gender truths that are missing. 30 courageously honest women reveal their awakening from hostility, blame and victim. A real eye-opener, "Daughters of Feminism" ultimately leads to an evolution in inter-sex unity, balance, fairness and forgiveness."  Tim Goldich, author of "Loving Men, Respecting Women; The Future of Gender Politics.

The sister book to "Sons of Feminism" (2017) by Janice Fiamengo, "Daughters of Feminism" presents the stories of 30 women about how they came to gender balance, to an appreciation for the legitimacy of men's issues as well as women's issues. These are stories of triumph in the search for truth within a culture of denial and misdirection, by women who love men and want to heal the modern misperception of men.
