Christina Hoff Sommers - Wikipedia

Christina Marie Hoff Sommers (/ˈsʌmərz/; born 1950) is an American author and former philosophy professor known for her writings about feminism in contemporary American culture. She coined the term "equity feminist" to denote her philosophy, which she contrasts with what she describes as "victim" or "gender feminism".[2]

Sommers is known for her criticisms of contemporary feminism, arguing that modern feminist thought often contains an "irrational hostility to men" and possesses an "inability to take seriously the possibility that the sexes are equal but different".[2] Other scholars and feminists have called her anti-feminist for her criticisms and writings.[3][4] Sommers rejects claims that she is opposed to feminism.[5] Sommers's most notable books are Who Stole Feminism? and The War Against Boys, both of which are critical discussions of contemporary feminism.
