- “The WAR AGAINST BOYS : How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men” — I encourage you to scroll down and read Amazon's review, as well as what readers have said near the bottom. Not only has almost everyone given the book 4 or 5 stars, but everyone's raving with what the author has to say.
- “Girls Rule” — Similar to the book linked above, another interesting article.
