Until the nineteen sixties, proper young women were raised to remain virgins until marriage, to be good mothers and wives, and to depend on husbands for status and economic survival. With the feminist movement, women began to understand they could make decisions regarding their own destiny. Women liked it that they could be equal to men in domestic and public life. Many worked hard to earn that equality.
Yet certain issues remain universal - love, controlling partners, career, motherhood and aging subjects of the stories in this book. Equality, however, has brought its kinks to the story.
Join author Barbara Wolfenden in The Accidental Jibe to explore how women might handle common and not-so-common problems. You will be surprised.
These relationship stories are fast-paced and written with beautiful language.
