Bushwomen by Laura Flanders
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Bushwomen" is a tale of a cynical species. The author Laura Flanders investigates how they rose to high office and where their real loyalties lie. There are savage portraits of all the women, including the real story behind Secretary of the Interior Gale Ann Norton - dubbed "The Woman from Marlboro Country" by her environmentalist foes; Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, who bullied union longhsore workers to the benefit of her trading-with China family and friends; Condoleezza Rice and her passion for oil and football; Lynne Cheney's lesbian novel and suppression of her activist daughter; and how Karen Hughes got her first job thanks to NOW - all revealing the cynicism of the Right's crusade to win moderate women voters and put a female face on anti-feminist policy.
