The book for review is “ Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry for Conservative Women” by Penny Young Nance. This book falls into the genre of religion, Christian life and women’s issues.
CEO and president of Concerned Women for America Penny Young Nance is a conservative Christian woman. In this book she talks about issues that are all around us as women in the US. What it means to be a woman in this day and age.
The book dives into issues such as the devaluing of women, politics, sexual assault to abortion, marriage and tolerance. The list of topics that we women face daily is a very long one. Here in one book a good portion are talked about and laid out for us to read in an easy format
Each section is broken down within the chapters but what makes it flow nicely is the humor that is interjected throughout the book. Without that this book would be hard to read just due to the topics that are discussed. Bible quotes are placed appropriately through the book in the right amounts, not too much to get bogged down but enough to make one appreciate the passage.
Penny encourages us to find our voice as women and to take a stand, be vocal on what is going around us for ourselves and for all women.
After each chapter is listed a woman in society and what she has done to show her voice. Also there are sections labeled “What Can Ester Women Do?” which is in reference to Ester from the Bible who helped saved her people.
It was nice to see a woman take a stand and be encouraging and also understanding of what we go through. Don’t let the title or topic prevent you from reading this book.
