In her most provocative book yet, Dr. Laura urgently reminds women that to take proper care of their husbands is to ensure themselves the happiness and satisfaction they yearn for in marriage. Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after.

Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.

Now, in The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura shows you—with real-life examples and real-life solutions—how to wield that power to attain all the sexual pleasure, intimacy, love, joy, and peace you want in your life.

Woman Power: for the woman who wants to ensure for herself -- and for her man -- the marital happiness and success everyone dreams of! The immediate feedback to Dr. Laura Schlessinger's seventh bestseller, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, affirmed that Dr. Laura helped hundreds of thousands of readers make good marriages even better and saved many from the brink of divorce. Now, due to overwhelming response from her readers and listeners who wanted to know more about the special power women have to transform their husbands, their marriages, and their lives, Dr. Laura has written Woman Power. Through a series of provocative chapters and Q&As, Dr. Laura guides women on how to assess what is valuable and what is vulnerable in their marriages, and stimulates women to think about what is really important about being a woman, a wife, and a mother. In addition, readers will find inspirational stories and tips, thought-provoking essays, and plenty of room for entries, thoughts, and journals. There are even fascinating Q&As for husbands and wives to do together!
For centuries there has been controversy over the role of the wife. So much so, that it is difficult to know who to believe. The Proper Role of the Wife is a research based study of the wife's role with a Scriptural answer. It dives into the heated arguments of the past and present from well known philosophers, women's liberals, conservatives, and biblical scholars. The data compiled will equip the Christian counselor with the proper perspective and enlighten readers as they explore the discrepancy and divergence from the Biblical patterns of Scripture to the solutions presented. Married women and especially women of the Christian faith wrestle with understanding their role as a wife. For example: ▪ What does it mean to leave and cleave? ▪ Is the Bible out-dated as it relates to submission? ▪ What is a helpmeet, and is it really necessary? ▪ Are there any set rules for how a wife should behave? ▪ How is a wife supposed to fit in the Church? Even though all of these questions are clearly outlined in Scripture with guiding principles that delineate the proper role and behavior of women in marriage, the actual role and behavior of women has diverged significantly from the pattern outlined in Scripture. In an effort to help rectify this problem, Rebekah Prewitt contrasts various world views with the Scripture. One by one, you will see how the answers of the "experts" come into conflict with God's Word and undermine the principles that Christians hold most dear.
Contemporary popular culture has created a slew of stereotypical roles for girls and women to (willingly or not) play throughout their lives: The Princess, the Nymphette, the Diva, the Single Girl, the Bridezilla, the Tiger Mother, the M.I.L.F, the Cougar, and more. In this book Ames and Burcon investigate the role of cultural texts in gender socialization at specific pre-scripted stages of a woman's life (from girls to the "golden girls") and how that instruction compounds over time. By studying various texts (toys, magazines, blogs, tweets, television shows, Hollywood films, novels, and self-help books) they argue that popular culture exists as a type of funhouse mirror constantly distorting the real world conditions that exist for women, magnifying the gendered expectations they face. Despite the many problematic, conflicting messages women receive throughout their lives, this book also showcases the ways such messages are resisted, allowing women to move past the blurry reality they broadcast and toward, hopefully, gender equality.

Excerpt: Laura Catherine Schlessinger (born January 16, 1947) is an American talk radio host, socially conservative commentator and author. Her radio program consists mainly of her responses to callers' requests for personal advice and has occasionally featured her short monologues on social and political topics. Her website says that her show "preaches, teaches, and nags about morals, values and ethics." Previously, Schlessinger combined a local radio career with a private practice as a marriage and family counselor, but after going into national syndication she concentrated her efforts on the daily The Dr. Laura Program, and on authoring self-help books. The books Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, and The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands are among her bestselling works. A short-lived television talk show hosted by Schlessinger was launched in 2000. In August 2010, she announced that she would end her syndicated radio show in December 2010, following a controversy caused by her repeated on-air use of a racial epithet while giving advice to an African-American caller. Her show moved to Sirius XM Radio on January 3, 2011. Schlessinger announced a "multi-year" deal to be on satellite radio. Schlessinger was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Brooklyn and on Long Island. Her parents w...
