Ep. 7: Why the Feminist Life Script Makes Most Women Miserable: Joy Pullmann

Joy Pullmann

Our culture is so saturated in feminist ideology that even conservatives think inside its wheel ruts. This wouldn’t be a problem except that feminism is antithetical to human flourishing because it has a false view of human nature.

The stark difference bw men and women when it comes to mate selection and family planning is just one example. Women have the most marital bargaining power in their 20s. The smartest female strategy, then, is to lock in a husband before women have to compete against younger, more fertile women.

This is the exact opposite of what our society tells women to do. It tells women to do the same thing men do. But women are not men. Our bodies are different, our fertility is different, and our priorities are different.

Joy Pullmann explains why the feminist life script that encourages women to postpone marriage and motherhood indefinitely is not only bad for women but not what most women want. She also tells her own story about how she got “lucky” with an unintended and unplanned pregnancy.

Joy Pullmann is the author of The Education Invasion, executive editor at The Federalist, and the mother of five children.
