    An enthralling blend of oral history and Gail Collins' keen research, this definitive look at 50 years of feminist progress shimmers with the amusing, down-to-earth liberal tone that is this New York Times columnist's trademark.

    Would you listen to When Everything Changed again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again to take notes the second time around to use in my lecture notes while I'm teaching.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought I knew a lot about women's history, but I learned SO much from this book.


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tone, cleverness, pacing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No- too dense- too intense- had to process the content-


    Any additional comments?

    Gail Collins is my new hero (or should I say heroine ;)

  • Soldier Girls: The Battles of Three Women at Home and at War

    Story
    (88)

    Soldier Girls follows the lives of three women on their paths to the military. These women, who are quite different in every way, become friends, and we watch their interaction and also what happens when they are separated. We see their families, their lovers, their spouses, their children. We see them work extremely hard, deal with the attentions of men on base and in war zones, and struggle to stay connected to their families back home.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Soldier Girls the most enjoyable?

    I have a more clear understanding of my partner's military and war experiences. I learned so much about the total picture of what war does to people and their family members.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soldier Girls?

    When one of the characters (don't want to spoil it for another listener)continued to grow and did not give up on her goal of pursing higher education.


    Which character – as performed by Donna Postel – was your favorite?

    Desma- I want to thank her for sharing her story.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That the National Guard is under appreciated big time in our country. As Americans we owe them a huge debt.Grateful that therapists can make such a huge difference in the lives of veterans.


    Any additional comments?

    Should be required reading for anyone who loves a veteran. This book was life changing for me in my understanding of my partner's war experiences.Proud to be a Hoosier.
