Radical journalist Laura Flanders exposes the seedy, cynical and power hungry history of the women in the Bush administration. Bushwomen: women appointed to the inner circle of Bush's cabinet and sub-cabinet, who front extremist policies, but allow them to be wrapped in female friendly rhetoric.

Praise For…

“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
