“That’s what men like: women who are easy to love,” writes Suzanne Venker, a family and marriage author, intent on teaching “alpha” women how to embrace their femininity and stop scaring off men, who are “alpha by nature,” supposedly due to testosterone. She defines nice as “being soft, gentle, and kind.” In a filmed segment, Venker told her hosts at FOX News that women should come home from their alpha jobs and be “compliant,” and not tell their man what to do. Though many women today believe this type of misogynistic thinking is extremely harmful to women’s liberation, Venker says, “we’re the one’s who are actually the problem.”
