The error of women’s rights, as seen from a traditionalist perspective

In his introduction to his 1992 translation of Louis de Bonald’s On Divorce (see my review), Nicholas Davidson argued against the modern habit of dividing the world up into “women’s questions,” “men’s questions,” and “children’s questions”:

There are only social questions, which can only be answered in terms of society as a whole. Do you wish to help any of these groups? It can only be done by strengthening the bonds of society. To attempt specifically to help any of these groups necessarily corrodes those bonds, injures vital relationships, and so hurts those it purports to help.
