Cornell sociology Professor James P. Houser, who has written extensively about women’s issues, made controversial remarks Wednesday about women, saying they’re too afraid to be themselves because they are “embarrassed.”
Houser told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that it is “just not worth” women trying to assert themselves and that they are too afraid of being judged by others.
He said that he is not a misogynist.
The remarks were the latest in a string of remarks he has made on social issues in recent years.
Hoseer wrote a book in 2015 called “Roots of Power,” which criticized women’s silence in response to male violence.
He is the author of the 2015 book, “Why Women Aren’t as Strong as Men: Why the Facts Don’t Support the Myth That Women are Equal to Men.”
Husband and wife have two daughters and a son.
Houseer has written more than 200 articles, books and articles about gender issues.
He previously served as the editor-in-chief of the academic journal Women’s Studies.
He did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
