    Scott Yenor (BSU; Heritage Foundation): The ROTTEN fruit of FEMINISM [Ep. 13]

    Scott Yenor (BSU; Heritage Foundation): The ROTTEN fruit of FEMINISM [Ep. 13]

    With the Thanksgiving holiday, Blaine Conzatti (Idaho Family Policy Center) is flying solo today. He interviews Dr. Scott Yenor, professor of political science at Boise State University, about the intellectual roots of feminism and the harm it causes family formation and society generally. 

    What are the dangers of divorcing sex from marriage and procreation? Why are feminism and abortion inextricably tied together? How does feminism emasculate men and drain their capacity to build culture? And what about government-funded daycare or requiring females to register for the draft? 

    The interview with Dr. Yenor was recorded in Nov. 2021, but the ideas they discuss are just as relevant today.
