New book examines the shifting role of femininity

New book examines the shifting role of femininity and its impact on modern relationships – author visiting NZ 28 - 30 July

In the ground-breaking new book, Feminine Lost: Why Most Women are Male (Weinstein Books, available in NZ 1 August), author Jennifer Granger says that all of us are a balance of masculine and feminine energies, and with the rise of the feminist movement, many women have now migrated to their masculine side. As a result, men have now found their way to their feminine side, resulting in relationship disharmony and making us more lonely when we’re single.

Feminine Lost examines new age female archetypes, including the Andro Woman, the Cougar, and the Good Doer, pairing them with their masculine opposite, and examining how these roles play out in modern relationships today. Jennifer’s analysis helps readers greater understand who we are, uncover why aspects of our lives aren’t working, and gain an understanding of why we continue to repeat unsatisfying relationships.

Over her years as a transformative coach, Jennifer began to see more and more of the same “types” emerging, as clients explained the personal and professional challenges they faced each day. Once she began to define men and women more clearly by their characteristics and actions, Jennifer developed a truly unique theory of what makes people tick.Accessibly written and filled with real-life examples, Feminine Lost offers a fresh perceptive of what it means to be feminine in the twenty-first century.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
