Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry for Conservative Women by Penny Young Nance discusses very important issues, such as the devaluation of women in society, women’s experiences in the workplace, and sexual assault. I was glad that Nance talked about the backlog problem with rape kits, as well as the Freedom of Information Act, which would report how many kits are left to be tested in each state.
The book was very informative, and I learned many new statistics. For example, did you know that according to a 2012 Pew study, 29% of all women were stay-at-home moms? I also learned about a lot of inspirational female leaders, such as Day Gardner, Marjorie Dannenfelser, and Beverly LaHaye.
I like how Nance critically analyzes women’s treatment both today and in earlier times in America. And I like how Nance wrote the section “You Are Not What You Do.” The book also serves as a reminder to readers that conservative women come in many different forms.
