"The timing of the Harlequins' prodigious success [in the 1970s] has coincided exactly with the appearance and spread of the women's movement, and much of its increasingly anti-feminist content reflects this symbiotic relationship."--"Soft-Porn Culture" (1980) by Ann Douglas
Antifeminism is opposition to feminism in some or all of its forms.
The term first appeared in print in the late 19th century:
- "... be promiscuous, relatively uninterested in matrimony, and unfaithful to their commitments to wives and children. Women may need large dowries to attract husbands. "Two kinds" of women may be perceived as a feminist versus antifeminist .." --The American Journal of Sociology (1895)
Antifeminism among "Libertarian Feminists"
Libertarian feminists such as Camille Paglia, Christina Hoff Sommers, Jean Bethke Elshtain and Elizabeth Fox-Genovese have been labeled "antifeminists", or holders of antifeminist views, by other feminists.
