Overview

"We take you to Richmond, Virginia, where Jenna Kenner is standing by. Jenna, what's going on?"
"Thanks Jeff. I'm at the Virginia capital, where a group of peaceful, but angry women are demonstrating."

"I see. How many are there?"
"A thousand, I would guess."
"One of the signs reads, 'Keep Yer Stinking Laws Out of My Vagina'. What are they upset about?"
"They're upset over a new abortion law the legislature passed last night where a woman seeking an abortion would have to undergo and pay for a Trans-vaginal Ultrasonic Probe."

"Is that what I think it is?"
"Yes. It's not funny."
"Ugh, sorry. I see a sign that reads, 'WOMEN HAVE RIGHTS TOO'. Would you ask her why she and her friends are mad and what they want?"

"I think she's the leader. I'll ask her"

Jenna stuck a mic in front of the woman. "Hi. What's your name?" "Doris."

"Hi, Doris. I'm Jenna Kenner with National News. I'd like to ask you a few questions if I may."
"Sure."

"I take it your group is protesting the new law the Governor has promised to sign today."

"And you'd be right. We want Governor "Ultrasound Bob" to know that the people this most affects don't like this stinking law, and women across the country are not going to forget."

"Across the country?"

Doris rested her sign on the ground. "Absolutely, Virginia isn't the only state where self-righteous men are sticking their nose in our panties."
"I don't understand. What do you mean?"

"The Pachyderms have been having a field day approving regressive legislation in Republican-controlled states across the country."

"Pachyderms?"

"Yeah, you know, the elephants in the room."

"Oh, yeah. Which states?"

"North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Pennsylvania, and a bunch more.

"My God. I had no idea."

"I know. Republicans know the public doesn't support their laws so they're passing them, while everyone sleeps and being real quiet about it."

"So there you have it, Jeff. These women feel there is a war on women, to deny their hard fought gains on women's rights."

"Thank you, Jenna. We'll keep following this story, but right now, I have the Chairman of the Republican Party, Crowe Magnon, and the President of the Women's League, Molly Markum. Molly, we'll start with you. What do you think about all this?"

Molly, frowned. "Extremists have started a war on women. With the misguided war in Iraq over and the forgotten war in Afghanistan ending, the GOP's fingers are itchy. So looking around they've discovered women. They don't like the advances we've made over the last fifty years—"

"That's ridiculous," said Crowe, "There's no war on women. Men idolize women."

"Humph! If you don't mind! Jeff asked me a question, and I was answering before you rudely interrupted. As for your assertion that men adore women, most men do, but not the petty Republican men. They think women, despite being fifty-one percent of the electorate, having a measly seventeen percent of the seats in Congress, is too much. They think women heading twelve of the fortune 500 companies is too many, and they have the nerve to think women making 77 cents for every dollar men make is too much!"

Crowe ran his fingers through his dark blond hair. "May I speak now?"

Molly glowered at Crowe, but Jeff said, "Go ahead."

"The 77% figure has been debunked. Men work more hours and overtime."

Molly snarled. "That's total horse shit and you know it."

"No, facts don't lie."

"Republican facts do!"

"We're talking about your figures, not mine."

Molly stuck her chin out. "You don't scare me, you bag of misinformation. We're talking about equal work for an equal amount of time and women make 3/4 of what men make. You're trying to take us back to the Father Knows Best days. Listen, you Neanderthal, father doesn't know best—he never did. Mother knows best. If men were the ones having babies there wouldn't be a pro-life movement. Conversely, if women ran this country we wouldn't have the economic basket case we have today."

    Yep, there's a War on Women, all right, and Girl Power pokes fun

    Yep, there's a War on Women, all right, and Girl Power pokes fun at the perpetrators. I love this book. It's raucous fun read and there's even a bit of romance. It's about a congresswoman who, disgusted with today's politics, starts a third political party for women. But when they add health insurance, job assistance, child care, etc. it becomes much more. It becomes a mutual assistance movement. Then, when a famous celebrity gets involved, an avalanche of support builds and the party takes off into National Prominence.

    If you want an awesome book about the possibility of a female president, this is it!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I could not put it down at all. Dee does a great job with describing the feelings that a candidate must go through on the campaign trail. I found that it is a totally possible situation. The character names are awesome, I giggled quite a bit over one of them. I would love to see a sequel with what happens after the election and how the next four years progress.

    TAKE BIRTH CONTROL AWAY?
    This book is fiction, but it's based on reality. Yes, there's a War on Women. Republican men scream 'There is no war on women, but let's face it, the Republican extreme, overreaching social agenda amounts to a war on women's reproductive, heath and economic rights.

    I love this book. I couldn't put it down. You won't be able to either and in the end you will be inspired!

    I haven't read the book yet but there is a War on Women. Also, I don't know how someone can just assume it's a book about murdering innocent people.  That's one thing that is wrong w/our country and that's all the close-minded people.  If people would listen and give things a chance instead of just assuming our world might be a little better.  Just my 2 cents worth and you can say what you want.
