AUTHOR

Murphy, Cornelius F.

SUMMARY

The discussion in this study of the relations between men and women is launched from a crucial premise: that the struggle for equal rights for women has reached a point where collaboration rather than confrontation between the sexes is necessary for continued progress. In order to attain true equality, women and men must recognize their legitimate differences and act together under circumstances in which their distinctive contributions are freely and reciprocally acknowledged. Reflecting on these differences in a series of interwoven essays, Cornelius F. Murphy seeks to open a constructive dialogue between the sexes. Reconciliation is his overarching concern. Murphy begins his study with an exploration of sexual oppression through the ages and its effect on both sexes. He discusses subtle and fundamental differences between masculine and feminine disposition, reasoning, and ways of knowing. He addresses the distinctions that traditionally have been drawn between public and private life and efforts of modern,women to overcome them. It is suggested that uncomplimentary, though fact-based, assessments of the masculine record in history, together with prevailing stereotypes of men, leave an incomplete picture of male identity and contribute to mistrust between the sexes. In response, Murphy investigates various ways of imagining a more elevated manhood. He extends his analysis to the subject of equality within the home, the opportunities and demands of married love, and the tensions and joys of procreation.Murphy, Cornelius F. is the author of 'Beyond Feminism Toward a Dialogue on Difference' with ISBN 9780813208060 and ISBN 0813208068.
