A journalist and feminist explores the ways the 2008 election brought issues concerning women and power, sexism and feminism into the national spotlight, and what it means for the country, all the while weaving in her first-person experience navigating this turbulent time.
Journalist and Salon writer Rebecca Traister investigates the 2008 presidential election and its impact on American politics, women and cultural feminism. Examining the role of women in the campaign, from Clinton and Palin to Tina Fey and young voters, Traister confronts the tough questions of what it means to be a woman in today’s America. The 2008 campaign for the presidency reopened some of the most fraught American conversations—about gender, race and generational difference, about sexism on the left and feminism on the right—difficult discussions that had been left unfinished but that are crucial to further perfecting our union. Though the election didn’t give us our first woman president or vice president, the exhilarating campaign was nonetheless transformative for American women and for the nation. In Big Girls Don’t Cry, her electrifying, incisive and highly entertaining first book, Traister tells a terrific story and makes sense of a moment in American history that changed the country’s narrative in ways that no one anticipated. Throughout the book, Traister weaves in her own experience as a thirtysomething feminist sorting through all the events and media coverage—vacillating between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and questioning her own view of feminism, the women’s movement, race and the different generational perspectives of women working toward political parity. Electrifying, incisive and highly entertaining, Big Girls Don’t Cry offers an enduring portrait of dramatic cultural and political shifts brought about by this most historic of American contests.

First-wave feminism takes front and center in this fearless novel, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, about women determined to succeed in a man’s world—only to be foiled by their own ambition “A Woman Needs a Man Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle.” It’s the 1970s, and the sexual revolution is just beginning. Four women have decided to open a feminist publishing house. Named in honor of the gorgon who turned men’s hearts to stone, MedusaPublishing gives the so-called Four Furies a platform for speaking out against female oppression. Layla is a wealthy, fundamental radical, intolerant of anyone whose ideals deviate, even slightly, from her own—that is, until she finds herself seduced by a married man; tiny Alice is “all mind and very little matter,” until she discovers the dangerous New Age practice of goddess worship; Stephanie leaves her unfaithful husband in pursuit of sexual fulfillment with other men—and women; and Nancy, tired of washing her fiancé’s socks, discovers she has a remarkable mind for business. Big Girls Don’t Cry is the story of four women who are determined to change the world, and who, over the course of two-and-a-half decades, ultimately transform themselves.
Voluptuous, full-figured women live life to the fullest and find true love in a quartet of romantic tales that include Donnal Hill's Dr. Love, The Perfect Seduction by Brenda Jackson, Through the Fire by Monica Jackson, and Francis Ray's His Everthing Woman. Original.
