“Fascinating Womanhood is an immensely powerful force for good in your marriage. However, it also gives you the knowledge to manipulate men. Please strongly resist any
Temptation to abuse it in this way.” – Disclaimer by the author of Fascinating Womanhood
Review by Faith Oneya
Any self-respecting feminists will vehemently disagree with some of the book’s contents in principle. The case made for fascinating womanhood appears to be strongly rooted in the bible( Even though the author takes her sweet time to make a disclaimer to nullify this) and makes for an interesting read, whether you are feminist or not.
The book promises to “To show you how to unlock all the love and tenderness in your husband.” In ten simple steps.
- Save your failing marriage.
- Make your good marriage better.
- Unlock all the love and tenderness in your man.
- Develop your full potential as a woman.
- Increase your self-confidence.
- Feel happier, lovelier, and more feminine.
The book is written in simple, everyday English that would appeal to the University professor and the “Mama Mboga” with limited education and makes for a very interesting read in the 220 pages that offers testimonials, real-life experiences and practicals (Different sets of homework).
The fascinating womanhood journey is shared through the experiences of Angela, a woman separated from her husband. The story continues to be told through different experiences of the women taking the fascinating womanhood course, all with excellent results (an exaggeration, perhaps?).
The book seems to fundamentally hold good intentions, and can be easily forgiven even for the instances when it starts sounding preachy and quite 18th century, I must say.
All in all, the book provides practical solutions for women that are willing you make their marriages work and subscribes to the school of thought that it is the women who make relationships work.
Feminists and spinsters too will enjoy the different levels of expressing femininity described so vividly in the book.
