The Demonic Influence on Women Today 

In the late ’60s, a small group of elite American women convinced an overwhelming majority of the country that destroying the most fundamental of relationships—that of mother and child—was necessary for women to have productive and happy lives.

From the spoiling of this relationship followed the decay of the entire family, and almost overnight, our once pro-life culture became pro-lifestyle, embracing everything that felt good. Sixty million abortions later, women aren’t showing signs of health, happiness, and fulfillment. Unprecedentedly high numbers of divorce, depression, anxiety, sexually transmitted disease, and drug abuse all point to the reality that women aren’t happier, just more medicated. 

Huge cultural shifts led to a rethinking of womanhood, but could there be more behind it than just culture, politics, and rhetoric?

Building off the scriptural foundations of the anti-Christ, Carrie Gress, Ph.D., makes an in-depth investigation into the idea of an anti-Mary—as a spirit, not an individual—that has plagued the West since the ’60s. Misleading generations of women, this anti-Marian spirit has led to the toxic femininity that has destroyed the lives of countless men, women, and children. 

Included in The Anti-Mary Exposed:

  • How radical feminism is connected to the errors of Russia, spoken of by Our Lady of Fatima
  • The involvement and influence of the goddess movement and the occult
  • The influence of “female” demons, such as Lilith and Jezebel
  • The repulsive underbelly of radical feminism’s chief architects
  • A look at the matriarchy, a cabal of elite women committed to abortion, who control the thinking of most women through media, politics, Hollywood, fashion, and universities

The antidote to the anti-Mary is, of course, Mary, the Mother of God, known widely as the most powerful woman in the world and the source of the belief that women ought to be treated with dignity. She is a beacon of all the virtues and qualities—purity, humility, kindness, beauty—that oppose this sinister force that has cast its spell upon so many women. Mary’s influence is unparalleled by any woman in history. She is the perfect model of Christian femininity, who desires to be a spiritual mother to us all, leading us to her Son, and to the fulfillment of our heart’s deepest desires.

    Its about time!

    Posted by Diane on May 24th 2023

    Every Woman and man and young adults should read this wonderful book. I watched this story play out. I remember Ms. Magazine when it hit the stands . It was a dark time in history and grew leaps and bounds. Tragedy the WW2 mothers didnt fight it too much and even they lost their husbands after 30 and 40 yrs over sex Revolution. I am grateful this book is in print. Its a gift from God. I remember my own family went through horrible times when this crap broke in. The church was falling too. It was a dark time but its grown out of control. Its true I only wanted to be a mother and wife but that was not popular or acceptable. Women said men dont have to pay for date and women would have all the sex in the world with them. Men fell like dominoes. It was not a good time at all. Thank You Carrie for the most accurate description of exactly what happened and is on going. May Mary raise us to an army to teach our families and friends the GOSPEL TRUTH! Onward Marys soldiers. We need to support men to be men. They need our friendship and Love.

    This is one of the best books that I have recently read. Describes in detail in Parts I and II how Mary has been erased in Christian circles and the negative results, and Parts -III and IV about Mary as our true mother, and how to help those who are wounded through their unbelief. I couldn;t put it down.

    The anti-Marian exposed

    Posted by Angela L. on May 24th 2023

    NOT FOR CHILDREN. This book really pokes the holes through the culture;s narrative of what the feminist movement is. I love how the author called this anti Marian and laid that all out for us. It's very accurate and a splendid way of putting it. Most are unaware of this hatred for virginity among the movement just like that of motherhood. This book will be great for all disillusioned "Catholics" who have been swept up into this movement due to poor teaching inside their homes. Especially women. Great to introduce to anyone in general who thinks this cult is benign and necessary. It has a dark element at times, so once again not for children and maybe not the depressed.

    Beautiful and timely book

    Posted by Elisabeth B. on May 24th 2023

    This is a beautiful book filled with truths about authentic femininity and the demonic roots of the toxic and destructive sexual revolution and women;s ;rights; movement of the 1960;s and 70;s. There is, however, one pervasive flaw with the book and it is this: the sin of Adam is said in this book to be that he took the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil from his wife and ate it, rather than fight with her. This is often a misunderstanding in Christianity: we tend when reading the story of Original Sin in Genesis to pin the majority of the blame for The Fall on Eve. In Genesis we read the story of The Fall and Eve plays the bigger part: it is her who speaks with the serpent, her who takes the fruit from the tree and eats of it, and her who gives it to Adam. Adams role in The Fall is pointedly absent, not because Eve sinned first and his sin was to cooperate with hers, but because his was a sin of omission. The role of man is to provide and protect, and but he did not provide Eve with any backup when facing the beguiling serpent, and he failed to protect both the garden and his beloved wife from a demon. In the first sin and the sins of the sexual revolution/women;s movement, the man fails to act and confront evil, thus failing his mission to provide and protect, and the woman steps out of her role as a companion and nurturer to take wrong action. Both sexes share an equal burden for sin and evil in the world, not caused by the other but motivated internally by pride and lack of trust in God. If Adam had trusted that God would give him the authority to fulfill his duty to protect the garden, he would not have held back from standing up against it. If Eve had trusted that God would not withhold good things from her, she would not have given in to the serpents lies. The story of The Fall is the inverse of the story of the Incarnation: in Genesis, Eve is seen and heard, while Adam lurks unnoticed in the background, but in the Gospels Jesus Christ, the new Adam, takes the foremost role as he heals the sick, brings glad tidings to the poor, contends with Satan and eventually dies to protect his people from their sin. The Virgin Mary, the new Eve, stays back, submitting herself fully to the will of God and humbly allowing Joseph, her son, and the Disciple John to care for her needs. The book does a great job of showing this beautiful balance that can be had when we live in harmony with the right ordering of the universe set by God in the beginning, but when discussing the sin of Adam and the men who stood (and stand) by while women run the culture into the closest thing this side of eternity to Hell, it is attributed to them not wanting to argue with women, rather than their true sin which is lethargy and inaction against evil. When men become apathetic and cease to address and confront evil, women take it upon themselves to fill this void and fix the problems themselves. Because inaction and silence in the face of evil is so contrary to the nature of masculinity, men in our culture turn to rape, pornography, violence, and homosexuality to fill the emptiness caused by their negligence. Because ruling and dominating is so contrary to the nature of femininity, women who put themselves in these positions subvert the family and the goodness of life by rejecting their fertility and trying to become men while preventing men from being themselves instead of lifting them up. In short, when men fail to act, women try to replace them. It is only by the Grace of God and the example of the Virgin Mary that we can heal this terrible tragedy. When men take action to confront evil and sin, even if they do so imperfectly, they help stop the cycle of failure, sin, and misery and allow women to nurture and heal the world. When women embrace humility and allow themselves to be served they call men higher and encourage them to become better versions of themselves. Again, this book really shows the contrast between the fallen state of our country and the perfect relationship between the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, but falls short on understanding the role men play in the issue. I 100% recommend for people who are well formed in the faith, but it could be slightly misleading to those with a less strong foundation on Church teaching.

    A Book for Our Times

    Posted by BRITTANY S. on Feb 28th 2023

    This book is definitely a great read to understand how our culture formed into what it is now, the meaning and agenda behind different groups, and how to respond and be a bold, beautiful woman in today;s society. I bought a bunch of these books for a book study with men and women. It is a good book for both to read and understand.

    The most informative content was

    Posted by PATRICIA H. on Feb 27th 2023

    The most informative content was excellent, and I regretted not reading it sooner. Perhaps at first glance, among so many great works, the title did not immediately clickù? Not sure, but I highly recommend it for educators, older youth group leaders, pre-Cana candidates, and mothers and fathers, regardless of their childrens ages.
