It is the year 2085, and in this future women rule and men are second class citizens. A council of 5 sisters make all the rules. Men aren't allowed to play sports because no man is allowed to be better than a woman. If a woman feels threatened or offended in any way by a man, he can be sent to work as mindless drone at a factory, or even put to death. Religion has been wiped out, and in this society almost anything goes. It made me cringe.
This book creeped me out because, in our world where political correctness, feminism, and identity politics take center stage, this story becomes all the more plausible. It reminds me of A Handmaid's Tale, and the more recent, VOX, but with the genders flipped. Really scary stuff.
Although I enjoyed the story, I didn't really feel anything for any of the characters, (except maybe disgust), and I found the dialogue to be somewhat wooden. Also, although this book is labeled as Christian fiction, God was briefly mentioned and that was a disappointment.
So, is this society better than the system we have today? You'll have to read the book to find out, but I leave you with a line from the book that conveys what I feel about it, "Feminism was just like the patriarchy, the only difference was the lipstick, pink ribbons, and coiffed hair. The desire for power and pleasure was no less intoxicating in the heart of a woman than it was in a man."
