|Purchase What Women Want||Patricia Ireland follows a long tradition of women who
have paved their own way in the world. In WHAT WOMEN WANT, Ireland
speaks frankly about her own journey to discovering empowerment both political
and personal: from being a teenage bride and a flight attendant for Pan
American Airlines, to becoming a successful corporate lawyer and the leader
of the country's largest organization for women's rights. She discusses
how important it is that women answer the question "What do I want?" and
go after it with everything they have. A feminist warrior in the tradition
of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Patricia Ireland reminds
us of what has been won, what is imperiled by the conservative political
climate, and what must still be done.
At a time when the future seems uncertain, many women want to know how to fight back and achieve power and control over their own lives. Patricia Ireland stands as an unparalleled role model and leader. WHAT WOMEN WANT is an articulate, inspiring, and convincing testament from the paramount voice in feminist politics.
