Is privilege real or imagined? It's clear that issues of race and equality have come to the forefront in our nation's consciousness. Every week yet another incident involving racial tension splashes across headlines and dominates our news feeds. But it's not easy to unpack the origins of these tensions, and perhaps we wonder whether any of these issues really has anything to do with us. Ken Wytsma, founder of The Justice Conference, understands these questions. He has gone through his own journey of understanding the underpinnings of inequality and privilege. In this timely, insightful book Wytsma unpacks what we need to know to be grounded in conversations about today's race-related issues. And he helps us come to a deeper understanding both of the origins of these issues and of the reconciling role we are called to play as ministers of the gospel. Inequality and privilege are real. The Myth of Equality opens our eyes to realities we may have never realized were present in our society and world. And we will be changed for the better as a result.

In this controversial book, the author examines the major issues of women's lives today - coming to the alarming conclusion that organized discrimination against women has worsened in recent years rather than improved, particularly at work. In spite of years of legislation and equal opportunity policies, equality and access to independence remains elusive. Such strategies have been bolted to an existing structure where the very fabric of society still refuses to accommodate a woman because of her sex.

THE MYTH OF EQUALITY opens up the ideological philosophy of Social Transcendentalism in relation to the connection between culture and race as they, in turn, are conditioned by environment, and further extends the basic gender-conditioned distinction between nature and nurture (or artifice) to include the effects of nature upon psyche and of psyche, conversely, upon nature or, as I would now say, soma. All in all, this book debunks simple equalitarian reductionism, whether of the humanistic or non-humanistic varieties, and shows that there is a whole lot more at stake than might at first meet the eye, especially when that eye has been blinkered, as it were, by social conditioning.

Argues that white academia and the American court systems uncritically accept an "American paradigm" which is framed by neoliberal, positivist theory. The paradigm fundamentally rests upon loyalty to the government and Western civilization, as well as a core of beliefs shared by the dominant class of Euro-Americans about the superiority of their culture. The author examines how this paradigm at once gives the lie to and impacts the notions of objective truth so cherished by the courts and academia. He supports his case with evidence from California's anti-affirmative action Proposition 209; the academic review process; and his own successful lawsuit, Acuna v.

Journalist turned psychologist Darcy Lockman offers a bracing look at the most pernicious problem facing modern parents—how egalitarian relationships become traditional ones when children are introduced into the household. In an era of seemingly unprecedented feminist activism, enlightenment, and change, data shows that one area of gender inequality stubbornly persists: the disproportionate amount of parental work that falls on women, no matter their background, class, or professional status. All the Rage investigates the cause of this pervasive inequity to answer why, in households where both parents work fulltime and agree that tasks should be equally shared, mothers’ household management, mental labor, and childcare contributions still outweigh fathers’. How, in a culture that pays lip service to women’s equality and lauds the benefits of father involvement—benefits that extend far beyond the well-being of the kids themselves—can a commitment to fairness in marriage melt away upon the arrival of children? Counting on male partners who will share the burden, women today have been left with what political scientists call unfulfilled, rising expectations. Historically these disappointed expectations lie at the heart of revolutions, insurgencies, and civil unrest. If so many couples are living this way, and so many women are angered or just exhausted by it, why do we remain so stuck? Where is our revolution, our insurgency, our civil unrest? Darcy Lockman drills deep to find answers, exploring how the feminist promise of true domestic partnership almost never, in fact, comes to pass. Starting with her own marriage as a ground zero case study, she moves outward, chronicling the experiences of a diverse cross-section of women raising children with men; visiting new mothers’ groups and pioneering co-parenting specialists; and interviewing experts across academic fields, from gender studies professors and anthropologists to neuroscientists and primatologists. Lockman identifies three tenets that have upheld the cultural gender division of labor and peels back the ways in which both men and women unintentionally perpetuate old norms. If we can all agree that equal pay for equal work should be a given, can the same apply to unpaid work? Can justice finally come home?
