Prisoner of Men's Dreams: Striking Out for A New Feminine Future (1991) is a book by Suzanne Gordon. The book was reviewed by Camille Paglia who noted that "the heart of the book consists of excerpts from a hundred interviews with career women, who do a lot of complaining about fatigue and disillusion."


Blurb:

"Employing data from more than one hundred interviews, the author argues that women have become victims of a refashioned feminism that limits their goal to being treated as an equal to men--but in a man's world"

Excerpt:

"... the important role of nursing is almost always trivialized or ignored altogether. ... On TV and in movies, physicians linger devotedly at their patients' bedsides ..."
