    " Love Cokie and the love women have for their moms. We invited our moms (or daughters or friends) to book club when we read this. Originally read this in 1999. "

    " Intresting after reading the reviews, i think depending on age and how you grew up determines how you feel about this book. My first interview for a teaching job I was asked if I planned on getting pregnant soon. My husband and I could not teach in the same town even tho he was high school and I was elementary. I loved her insights into life. Was amazed on dates we were allowed to enter certain places. I had to think did I have women profs in college... "

    " I want to get this book in print so I can remember some of the "first woman to" references in many of these essays. The essays by journalist Cokie Roberts cover many topics of interest to women, especially the history of women's accomplishments but also stories of how family and friends support each other, how central those roles of mothers and daughters are no matter what else we are passionate about. Having seen women politicians I'm not sure that women will always be anti-war, family friendly leaders, but possibly more likely to be than men. This is by no means an anti-man book. Ms. Roberts is happily married, adored her father, loves her son and son-in-law, and shows how husbands were often their wives' biggest supporters (fathers often their daughters' biggest fans too).
