With women making up only 14 percent of Congress and with only eight women CEOs in the entire group of Fortune 500 companies, women's collective voices are clearly underrepresented. Nor are they proportionately present on the airwaves or in the op-ed pages of the country's newspapers. This book helps right that imbalance by giving women a platform for voicing their opinions, priorities, hopes, and ideas for change. The book includes short experiences, stories, thoughts, and meditations written and shared by women around the world. Authors, celebrities, experts, and politicians are included, along with soccer moms and teenage girls, creating a work that is humorous, moving, questioning, opinionated, warm, and informative as it examines what women would choose if they had a chance to participate in ruling the world. Note: A portion of this book's royalties will be donated to the Feminist Majority.

The book begins before my birth in 1942, during World War II on my Dad’s farm in Borden County Texas. We moved many times during the first eighteen years of my life. My family and I have gone through many hardships during those years. We were very poor but did not know it in our younger years. Everyone we encountered was in a similar situation. We soon found out when we started to school. I started to school on a cold winter day in November, 1948. My brothers Richard, Ray and I had to walk a mile to catch the bus. I have never forgotten how cold my hands and feet were when the bus finally arrived. It seemed like hours but it was probably ten or fifteen minutes. Starting late to school was the normal, because farm children had to pick the cotton before winter set in. I never heard of any parents getting into trouble for keeping the children out of school so long. I know Mom and Dad didn’t. We moved five times between 1948 and 1957. We moved to Roswell, New Mexico in 1954. We were fortunate to move within the same school district so we did not have to change schools the next three years. I graduated from the eighth grade in 1957 from Berrendo School. In September I started to North Junior High School my freshman year in Roswell. The first time I went to a city school. The next year I went on to Roswell Senior High School. My dad gave up on farming and worked in a service station in Lake Arthur the next two years. I stayed in Roswell with my three brothers living in a trailer house. My oldest brother JW sold the trailer and married his girl friend Betty in 1959. My mom, two brothers, Richard and Ray, two sisters, Mary Jo and Annie and I moved into a house next door to JW and Betty. My Mother baby sat Betty’s’ two children. I took on clothes ironing jobs, so I would have money for school supplies and spending money. I did not change schools again. However, I did not graduate with my class in 1961. I took a correspondent course and received my diploma and immediately I had to go to work. I worked at a bakery for the next year. I loved to read. I read library books from the time I learned to read. In my younger years I read all to the Canterbury Tales. I enjoyed telling stories to my two little sisters from the books I read. I taught them the nursery rhymes. I told them stories of the many incidents that happened during the moves from three states to the different farms we moved to. I am blessed with two sons. My oldest sons, David Bradberry ask me several times to write down the story of my life growing up. He wanted his children and grandchildren to hear the stories from their grandmother’s generation. I never thought I could write the stories down on paper. Once I started writing the memories started to flow. My youngest son, Steven Bradberry and his wife Jody helped me with the writing. Steven designed this book. I worked five years for the County of San Bernardino in the criminal department and the appeal section of the Superior Court, 1973 through 1978. I went to work for the 4th District Court of Appeal in September 1978 and retired December 31, 1998. I lived 34 years in Redlands, California until I retired.

So, you found yourself a man. You owned him, you operated him, you dragged him back to your cave and married him -- and now you can't remember why you wanted him! Not to fear, because celebrated relationship expert Regena Thomashauer has returned, ready to turn the walking, talking, care-taking coma that is your marriage into a hot, juicy celebration of love and life Have you ever felt that your daily responsibilities are taking a toll on your general enthusiasm, your desire for intimacy? Or that you need to ask your husband for permission before you go somewhere or do something? Or that you find yourself angry at him for no real reason? You may be suffering from the Good Wife Syndrome. The Good Wife Syndrome is a common malady characterized by an unnatural drive to sacrifice yourself, organize your married life around your husband's needs, and then blame your bewildered husband for your profound unhappiness. Mama Gena's Marriage Manual is here to remedy your condition by administering a simple yet tremendously effective antidote: fun. Yes, that's right, fun. Mama Gena wants you to throw out your preconceived notions of what marriage should be and allow yourself to construct a marriage based on your own personal gratification. Because whether it's enjoying a great cup of coffee, taking the day off work, or having great sex, when a woman indulges her desires she inflates her feminine power and has an uplifting effect on everything and everyone around her. To help you on your quest to revive your marriage, Mama Gena suggests a radical idea: that the community of women around us (the support system she calls our Sister Goddesses) has a greater influence on the outcome of our relationships than the partners we choose. Women's desires can turn dreams into reality, and when women get together, their power multiplies exponentially. Mama shows you how to harness that power and channel it into the daily acts that benefit your love life. She includes dozens of exercises to help you and your Sister Goddess girlfriends focus on fun, praise yourself daily, let go of anger, and learn to appreciate the men you have. Then once you've started practicing these new behaviors, Mama trains you to train your husband -- to communicate without rancor, to welcome his point of view, to reinstate the practice of lust, and much more. Mama Gena wants you to throw off the shackles of the Good Wife Syndrome and enjoy a marriage that's free of guilt, blame, and obligation. Mama Gena's Marriage Manual will help you craft a partnership that enables you to do more, have more, and be more than you could ever be on your own.
