Germany’s Neo-Housewives Spark Debate on Gender Roles

The 262 pages behind the pink cover of “The Eva Principle” are full of anti-feminist anger. Herman feels that nothing less than the survival of the country is at stake — Germans will “die out” if women don’t change their behavior, she says. She sees herself as courageously breaking a “taboo” by criticizing women’s liberation.
