Your Money and Your Life: The High Stakes for Women Voters in '08 and Beyond

by

Your Money and Your Life: The High Stakes for Women Voters in '08 and Beyond Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your Money and Your Life is a manifesto for this year's woman voter and for male voters who care about the women in their lives. Martha Burk empowers the reader to cut through the doubletalk, irrelevancies, and false promises, and focuses directly on what's at stake for women not only in the '08 election, but also in the years beyond. Where women stand, what women think, and what we need-with tough questions for candidates to hold their feet to the fire. Your Money and Your Life should be carried to every political rally, every press conference, every precinct meeting — and into the voting booth.

Review:

"Martha Burk shows us there is still work to do — and shows us a road to gender equality that goes straight through the voting booth!" Susan Scanlan, Chair, national Council of Women's Organizations

Review:

"Whether you're a young woman worried about your future options, an employed woman fighting to break the glass ceiling, a mom out of the paid workforce, a retired woman struggling to make ends meet, or a feminist activist trying to change the world, this book has the information you need." Eleanor Smeal, President, Feminist Majority Foundation

Review:

"Martha Burk spends her time breaking barriers for women." Augusta Chronicle (Georgia)

Review:

"Martha Burk is much more than simply an advocate for women's issues. Her broad range of experience and understanding of the political process make her uniquely qualified to outline what's at stake — not just for women, but for the country as a whole — in the upcoming election. A timely and important call to action." Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico

Review:

"What every woman needs to know to bring about real change for themselves, families and communities, and for this nation." LaDonna Harris, President and Founder of Americans for Indian Opportunity; Convener, National Women's Political Caucus
