Read full description of the books:
Prepare to be transported to corporate boardrooms, television studios, prisons, concert halls, classrooms, and an amazing array of households across our country—all described in the words of the women who were actually there.
Drawn from an extraordinary project in which more than five hundred women from all walks of life kept diaries on a single day, the collective voices reach across experiential, cultural, geographical, and socioeconomic boundaries. While the deliciously intimate details satisfy even the most shameless curiosity, most importantly, this book reveals the extraordinary in the ordinary—those moments that occur throughout any given day and illuminate who we really are as individuals, as women, and as Americans.
This book has entries culled from this extraordinary project, including Kim Gandy, president of NOW; Erika Harold, Miss American 2003; Judi Ehrlich, an L.A. private eye; and Janet Olson, an inmate in Minnesota. It is a vibrant collection that celebrates the diversity of women in America and their lives.
