Description


The Right has been using the culture wars to divide and conquer for years, but in 2004, that strategy was given a new twist. In an election where women’s votes were key, the Bush team used highly placed female appointees to run cover for the most reactionary administration of our time. Flanders predicted gender would be crucial in the 2004 race. Her prescient book is the first to investigate the Bush administration’s estrogen shield. Bushwomen exposes Condoleeza Rice’s complicity in human rights crimes, Lynne Cheney’s lesbian novel, Karen Hughes’ debt to NOW, and an insightful new chapter takes a bracing look at the 2004 election and the era to come. A New York Times bestseller, Bushwomen is the only book to unmask how the most powerful women in the world are using the rhetoric of women’s rights to advance an unpopular corporate agenda around the globe.

Praise for Bushwomen: How they Won the White House for Their Man…


“Fierce, funny and intelligent, Bushwomen fills an important gap ...”—Publishers Weekly

Bushwomen is the perfect antidote to cynical politics and corporate spin. As we’ve come to expect from Flanders, it’s a terrific read and just what we need—an accessible account of the far Right’s drive to power, and the women who front it.”—Susan Sarandon

“Laura Flander’s cool book shows that Bush’s women are to feminism what his election was to democracy. Every stupid white man should read this book, and everyone else too!”—Greg Palast

“... a splendid new book.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“... compelling and foreboding. Be scared, be very scared.”—Independent
