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.
