Mann for All Seasons: Wit and Wisdom from the Washington Post's Judy Mann

Judy Mann, Author Mastermedia Publishing Company $19.95 (306p) ISBN 978-0-942361-22-3
Arguing that the feminist movement strenuously promoted women's rights while neglecting the issue of individual choice, Mann, in a sampling of her Washington Post columns, reviews the role and treatment now accorded to women in the workplace, politics, courts and the media, and appraises the state of the American family. Drawing on her own experience as a single working mother, her pithy, forceful, literate writing covers an astonishing range of topics, from national issues--drugs, child abuse--to profiles of memorable though little- known people. Among her suggestions for improvements: persuading men to make women full partners at home and at work; lengthening school days; and involving the state and business in family and health support systems that will provide flexible work schedules and care for young and elderly dependents.
