If you are a feminist or love one, you might be interested in picking up the new issue of Ms. Magazine. One of the articles is "Reason Comes In From The Cold" by Susan Jacoby. It basically outlines how the antiscience movement has been allowed to grow the past several years, as well as the impact of a lack of reason on women's issues (especially health and sexuality), and outlines the first steps needed in the long process to reverse the damage. On a nonrelated note, the issue features President Barack Obama in a very cool comic book pose with a T on that says "This is what a feminist looks like." Indeed.
Susan Jacoby's book "The Age of American Unreason" is scheduled for paperback in February by Vintage Books. I'm intrigued, how about you??
