While the library has numerous resources about women's rights, finding materials about its downsides is a lot more difficult.  Here are some ideas on how to find resources on this topic:

In Gale: Opposing Viewpoints, there are many viewpoints available about both women's rights and feminism.  Some of these express views that could be considered as criticisms of certain aspects of the women's rights movement (for example, the viewpoint titled No-Fault Divorce is Harmful).  Once you find some possible ideas from these lists you could then search the book catalog and academic databases for more resources on the subtopic.

Another possibility is to find books or articles about the history of women's rights or feminist movements, as some of them may include information about specific criticisms that have been expressed against them.  You also could specifically look for materials by or about antifeminism or antifeminists, such as Phyllis Schlafly.
