Betty Steele is the author of The Feminist Takeover. She lives in Toronto and travels throughout North America and Britain to address groups on feminism and the family.
In this lively book, Betty Steele argues that feminism has had its day – that men and women once again are drawing towards one another, seeking new understanding and reconciliation. She writes that men and women today are admitting that they are looking for love and sex that spring from friendship a slow growth of trust, and an affinity of the spirit – which together can lead to a lifetime commitment. Meanwhile, mothers are realizing that motherhood-on-the-run is a shabby excuse for the real thing, that one hour or so a day of "quality time" with their children is not enough and is shortchanging the next generation. Beyond its incisive analysis and documentation, Together Again offers hope that bridges can be built between the sexes towards a happier, healthier society in the 1990s.
