Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The role and image of women in our society is shaped by all of us and has been impacted by social forces over the years from the rise of feminism to current economic uncertainties. There are things that have changed for the better and there are things that need improvement in the championing of women's rights. This book spans the breadth of public opinion from the conservative to the liberal in a series of interviews. You be the judge of how far we've come and where we need to go in how we define women within our society. ____________________________ Maybe we're really in a sex object market all the time, but it's only in regard to women that it's thought of as exploitation. - Social scientist Not only did a woman not have control over her own body in the medical world in the 1970s, but she was also pointed out as the sexual property of a man. - Retired social worker What I'm doing is the best I can do and if it isn't, then I'm my own worst enemy. If I like me, I'm all right. - School principal The woman who is confident in herself and in her role is less concerned about her appearance and will make the most of what she has. - Plastic surgeon It's going back to being old fashioned, but I thought the greatest thing that ever happened to me was being able to be called 'Mrs.' - 76 year old woman
