Is Feminism to blame for the good and the bad in our kids’ lives? Why are boys doing worse than ever while our girls are doing better in terms of academics, high school graduation, and college admissions? Has Title IV helped or hurt our kids? Do you believe our elementary schools are feminized? How many male teachers do you see these days?

Let’s discuss the POWER that feminism has instilled in our girls/women and its upside AND downside this Thursday July 17 at #DadChat, at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. We have noted expert Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar as our very special co-host. Be sure to read her bio, below…

Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar is a South Asian American who has lived in Qatar since 2005. Moving to the Arabian Desert was fortuitous in many ways since this is where she met her husband, had two sons, and became a writer.  She has since published eight eBooks, including a momoir for first time mothers, Mommy But Still Me; a guide for aspiring writers, So You Want to Sell a Million Copies; a short story collection, Coloured and Other Stories; and a novel about women’s friendships, Saving Peace.

Her coming of age novel, An Unlikely Goddess, won the SheWrites New Novelist competition in 2011.

Her recent books have focused on various aspects of life in Qatar. From Dunes to Dior, named as a Best Indie book in 2013, is a collection of essays related to her experiences as a female South Asian American living in the Arabian Gulf. Love Comes Later was the winner of the Best Indie Book Award for Romance in 2013 and is a literary romance set in Qatar and London. The Dohmestics is an inside look into compound life as well as the secrets kept between housemaids and their employers.

After she joined the e-book revolution, Mohana dreams in plotlines. Learn more about her work on her website at www.mohadoha.com or follow her latest on Twitter.  Mohana is currently working on her first historical novel, set in the East Asian country of Laos.

This week’s #DadChat transcript and stats

  • Sharon Ulery Ruggieri

    I had only brothers, five sons before I had a daughter and my husband, of course. I’ve watched feminism destroy more than just our boys, it’s destroyed our families. The original idea of women voting and equal pay for equal work has blow itself into this ridiculous war on women argument, and I’ve had it. I’m teaching my daughter to be a lady and my boys to be men and blow of the rest of this imaginary stuff

    Females can dress in an attractive, comfortable manner without the extreme of that misleading photo, either frump or slut. Inaccurate messaging to females.

    Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.
