ABSTRACT
This article describes the reaction of feminists to studies and writings that openly challenge the social theory upon which they base their social agenda. It illustrates the hostile reaction of feminists to the study by Michael Noer entitled "Don't Marry a Career Woman," published by "Forbes" magazine in 2006 as typical. It explains that Noer's study was based on meritorious research and that its implication for society is worth investigation within the tradition of scientific inquiry. It predicts the possible of a return of traditional values.
