Where will the battles of the s lead? And when will we know the answer?
In Gloria Steinem's lifetime? Like the tide, the prospect of a female president keeps advancing, and receding. The author asks the important question of where the first female president will come from, what her background and political experience will be, what her family will consist of.
In trying to answer these questions, she compares the backgrounds of Clinton and Palin. Sanchez also looks at how their campaigns were run, and how that impacted the female vote for each candidate as well as other demographics. Sanchez considers the "Mean Girls" factor, and believes that one of the most important lessons all women need to learn is how to fend for themselves in a world where social bullying is a huge problem.

Nov 22, Kristina Klausser rated it really liked it. Overall, I found the book interesting and thought provoking. There were a few moments where I saw the partisanship of the author creeping in and proving the exact opposite of what she was saying asking why women didn't get angry enough about the treatment of Sarah Palin in the media to vote for her or commenting on the fact that the focus on Michelle Obama's clothes might be her own fault but overall i enjoyed it. Worth a read for anyone especially women with an interest in women in politics Overall, I found the book interesting and thought provoking.
Worth a read for anyone especially women with an interest in women in politics thus far and where we go from here.
