    Sooo, being quite happily married myself, I tended to view this book askance. The author is adamant that marriage is a trap and any woman who enters it will be hindered both economically and socially.I am in direct conflict with that point of view. Mainly cause I did not achieve my career goals until I married and with the direct support of my hubby. His willingness to shoulder many household tasks and financial support until I could complete my education in my new career field allowed me the opportunity to advance. His continual support of my having to work long hours to achieve success in my new career meant that now in our older years, we have a pretty nice life and he takes it as a point of pride that I earn more than he does. The point here is that even older people (we are in our fifties,) are not all bound to this stereotypical interpretation of the traditional women's and men's role in society and marriage. Granted she gives a good case history of women being the second class people she wants us to believe they are - and I am not denying history here - but even in the past there are examples of women taking charge and claiming equal status, they just weren't as overt about it as we are today. Overall the book is well written, and it does make you think. I do believe that women should be able to support themselves, so that is valuable advice. But it is also important to note that there is a whole lot of people out there who have heard all the stories from both the feminist and traditional side and just slip under the radar and do their own thing. People have been doing that for hundreds of years and so I don't think that is anything new. My take on marriage is, if it works for you, go for it. There is a lot of joy in having a marriage and not a lot of downside in my own case. If it doesn't work for you, then don't do it, but whatever you do, make sure that you are taking care of you and don't buy into all these theories of men and women - get out there and make your own choices.

    Almost all of us have chuckled over a “dumb blonde” joke or eagerly snatched up dolls with outstanding hour glass figures and legs which seemed to go on forever. I read The Power of the Blonde: Cracking Down on Men’s Control following Ms. Gadish’s previous fascinatingbook Beasts of Prey: The Hard Truth About Men. This book focuses more upon the growing power of women, starting from their diminished role in history, to their current, almost full control of their bodies, sexuality, relationships, and more. In this well-written account, Ms. Gadish’s compelling and humorous style takes center stage. From the pinup girls of World War II to the female single parent and equal breadwinners of today, the author pieces together an enticing quilt detailing the role of women in society. Although some men might have difficulty agreeing with some of the author’s points, Ms. Gadish has certainly done her homework. This book is told in an entertaining style which engages the reader from the outset. It is an impressive work for women (and men) to enjoy.

    Exceptionally readable, wise and deep. Similarly to "Beasts of Prey," "The Power of the Blonde" takes the readers on a philosophical tour, exposing masculine monopoly with a fascinating take on women's sexuality.

    I like this author. She makes a serious research, writes wonderfully and argues forcefully. Loved her take on woman's sexuality, and how it is related to emancipation and success of women today.

    Amazing book! Totally mind blowing! Following on her hilarious "Beasts of Prey", the writer does a great job explaining and demonstrating the double standards in society that prevail. I liked the parts about men cheaters, Casanova, Don Juan, and also the parts about sexism in language was remarkable!
