The deliberately audacious mix of contributors spans different generations, races, ethnicities, and sexual preferences: CEOs, housewives, rock stars, farmers, scientists, prostituted women, politicians, women in prison, firefighters, disability activists, artists, flight attendants, an army general, an astronaut, an anchorwoman, even a pair of teens who edit a girls' magazine. Each article celebrates the writer's personal voice — her humor, passion, anger, and the integrity of her perspective — while offering the latest data on women's status, political analysis, new "how-to" tools for activism, and visionary yet practical strategies for the future — strategies needed now more than ever.
