Overview

Disgusted with politics and the sudden right wing war on women, a group of determined women take matters into their own hands and form a women's political party. Initially laughed at by the established political parties, they soon change their tune when women and some men begin signing up in droves.

Gender WARS - War on Women is a tongue-in-cheek Political Chick-lit set in an Alternate Reality. It is a mainstream story, based loosely on the Republican 'War on Women' that would not appeal to Right of Center readers.

_________________________________________________

"For the last year, I stood by open-mouthed, as men in the House, who hadn't a clue, passed archaic law after law, about women, as if some omnipotent wizard behind a curtain directed their actions. We know there's a Big Brother out there somewhere. It's as plain as the noses on our faces. This Big Brother is not only directing, but writing bills for Republican State legislators across the spectrum, local, state and federal. Different versions of almost the same bills are being presented and passed in various states, and when we find the source, shit's going to hit the fan."

Kelly said, "I know. I'm boiling mad, but what can we do? It's a man's world."

Sally smiled. "That's what the party chairman had the nerve to say to me. Well, that's about to change. Kelly, you said you're mad. Polls show that millions of women across the country are mad, too. Let's face it. The fact that some shadowy group has declared war on us and that a certain party is going along lockstep and barrel means there are men and even some women who don't like us. And we, as a gender, are never going to reach our full potential unless we take matters into our own hands."

Jennifer raised her hand. "What're you getting at, Sally?"

Before Sally could answer, Lindy touched Sally's wrist. "I'd like to respond to that, if I may."

Sally sat. "Please do."

Lindy smiled. "Thank you." She glanced at Jennifer. "Jennifer, right?"

"Yes."

"Jennifer, women outnumber men in America by ten million. In two thousand and eight, women cast nine million more votes than men did. Women have political muscle. And with numerical superiority, women have the power to take over the country, literally.

Men know this, but in their smug superiority don't worry about women. They have the balls and we don't. Well, they misjudged us. Men might need balls but women don't. In this climate, women are so outraged, we don't need balls. Our strength comes from within, not our sex organs. Up until now, this generation has never had a reason to assert ourselves, but things are changing. With the advent of the Tea Party, right wing legislators are getting more and more radical. Which brings me to the point of this meeting."

Lindy paused for effect, "Ladies, Sally and I are proposing that we form a political party for women. Men can join. We know not all men are pigs. There are many empathetic, caring men, who can register as SAFE members. Ladies, women have the numbers and with that, we have the power to, as some politicians are so fond of saying 'Take back our country'."

    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.
