Ecclesiasticus 25 said:
22 There is no head worse than the head of a serpent
23 And there is no anger above the anger of a woman. It will be more agreeable to abide with a lion and a dragon, than to dwell with a wicked woman.
24 The wickedness of a woman changeth her face: and she darkeneth her countenance as a bear: and sheweth it like sackcloth. In the midst of her neighbours,
25 Her husband groaned, and hearing he sighed a little.
26 All malice is short to the malice of a woman, let the lot of sinners fall upon her.
27 As the climbing of a sandy way is to the feet of the aged, so is a wife full of tongue to a quiet man.
28 Look not upon a woman's beauty, and desire not a woman for beauty.
29 A woman's anger, and impudence, and confusion is great.
30 A woman, if she have superiority, is contrary to her husband.
31 A wicked woman abateth the courage, and maketh a heavy countenance, and a wounded heart.
32 Feeble hands, and disjointed knees, a woman that doth not make her husband happy.
33 From the woman came the beginning of sin, and by her we all die.
34 Give no issue to thy water, no, not a little: nor to a wicked woman liberty to gad abroad.
35 If she walk not at thy hand, she will confound thee in the sight of thy enemies.
36 Cut her off from thy flesh, lest she always abuse thee.

I could not resist getting a copy after hearing it was banned, will read it eventually as well.

I've been aware of this book basically since it was published, but didn't know it was banned. I guess it's a victim of "must be doing something right" syndrome.

I finished the book a few days ago. Is not that long, 199 pages.

What I got from it was that it goes into specific detail about a group of feminists in the 1960s who deliberately went on the war path to destroy the American family and patriarch. It points out that although people look back on the 1950s as idyllic, it could not have been perfection as it led to the 60s. There is a reminder of the earlier feminists who for example held lesbianism up as an ideal.

There's a fair bit about Cosmopolitan Magazine, as one of the earlier propaganda channels to get the toxic message out there. In particular that it is good for a woman to be anything other than a mother or a virgin.

There is a lot of detail on toxic femininity in the bible including Jezebel, Lilith, Eve.

The last section talks about Mary and tries to speak to women to encourage them to reconnect with her and with the church.

There's quite a bit in there about how it harms a woman's soul to ignore her reproductive ability, for example with enthusiasm for abortions.
