But at the same time, some Feminist movement sects have been hi-jacked by extremist "femnazis" if you want to call them that, to propagate an "anti male" movement.

Sure, the specific Extremist Feminist movement that comes to mind if Radical Feminism, which actually considers its movement as "a war against men."
The truth, however, is that boys, not girls, display the signs of educational and social disadvantage, and the cause of this turns out to be a combination of feminist reeducation programs and general "progressive" educational theory. The interaction of these influences is one of the most interesting features of the book. As part of her conclusion, Sommers says:

In a recent Perth survey of Year 11 students (male and female), 82% answered male, male. male. female to the survey questions.
The campaign of affirmative action over the past three decades to improve opportunities for women has been hijacked by radical feminists to denigrate, belittle and emotionally castrate men (particularly white heterosexual men). Many of the feminist zealots are now in positions of power as government advisers where they increasingly influence public policy.

[Is that right? May I ask which radical feminist, or which radical feminists said this, or where you are basing this on?
WIE: Which brings us to another question I wanted to ask you. Sally Miller Gearhart, in her article, “The Future—If There is One—Is Female,” writes: “At least three further requirements supplement the strategies of environmentalists if we were to create and preserve a less violent world. 1) Every culture must begin to affirm the female future. 2) Species responsibility must be returned to women in every culture. 3) The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately ten percent of the human race.” What do you think about this statement?
MD: I think it’s not a bad idea at all. If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males. People are afraid to say that kind of stuff anymore.
“Man's discovery that his genitalia could serve as a weapon to prehistoric times, along with the use of fire and the first crude stone axe. From prehistoric times to the present, I believe, rape has played a critical function. It is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear.”

My question for you is this: Has the femminist movement adapted to the changes in our society since the inception of the movement?
It is 2006, and the wage gap hasn't budged for a decade, even as women have improved their education and qualifications. We are talking about women working full time -- not part time, not on maternity leave, not as consultants. We are talking about women working at every economic level, from waitresses to corporate lawyers, from reporters to CEOs.
