Women's Magazine - August 1, 2005

We will be featuring two premiums you cannot live without ! First, we will feature an interview with noted feminist scholar Susan J. Douglas author of The Mommy Myth, The Idealization of Motherhood and How It Has Undermined Women. Douglas introduces us to "the new momism" trend in American culture that is making women feel that only through the perfection of motherhood can they truly find contentment. In our interview we will discuss how the new momism, promoted by the new conservative agenda, has affected all women with children or without and we will be offering her insightful book.

We will also feature the sounds of righteous babe musician Ani Difranco whose powerful political lyrics are delivered in own unique staccato singing style accompanied by her virtuoso guitar finger picking. We will be offering her new album “knuckle Down” and her 2004 album Madison Live as a premium.
