about this book: Feminism: Equal Rights Now & Forever

Bethann Dunlap and her mother were feminists who fought for equal rights. They refused to accept the atrocities the male world tried to impose on them. They refused to be considered second class citizens because they were single mothers. They believed that equality for women is progress for all.

This is the story of middle twentieth century discrimination against women and single mothers, and what the Dunlap women did to fight against inequities. Bethann Dunlap is the embodiment of a woman who refused to be a conquered victim.

This is the story of middle twentieth century discrimination against women and single mothers, and what the Dunlap women did to fight against inequities. Bethann Dunlap is the embodiment of a woman who refused to be a conquered victim.

In America, in the 1950s:

• A woman could be fired for being pregnant.
• Single mothers were often coerced into putting their newborn up for adoption.
• Single mothers were often denied employment.
• Single pregnant women were often denied entry in college.

The greatest weapon available for women to fight sexual discrimination is to recognize that it exists. It's time for every woman to ban together to make any form of sexual discrimination unconstitutional and illegal.

 Amazing

One of the most important reasons for the success of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was the unique, witty and warm relationship between Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) and Lou Grant (Ed Asner).

If you loved those characters, you'll simply adore Bethann Dunlap and John Durham. Their banter, their love for publishing, their intelligence, and their respect for each other will make you fall in love with them.

The stories of middle twentieth century discrimination against single mothers will take you back to a time when women had to fight a male dominated society. You'll say, "Thank goodness for those women who fought against inequities."

Yes, Bethann Dunlap is the embodiment of a woman who refused to be a conquered victim.

The characters in "Bethann" take you on a journey through generations fraught with struggles for survival. It's true. Love creates a will to survive.

"Bethann" should be your first choice for your summer reading list.
