Political Wisdom for Today’s Revolutionary Woman
**A word about the word “catfight” here.
With clear-eyed humor supported by statistic and fact, filmmaker Maryann Breschard delivers a wake-up call to women in American Catfight: Political Wisdom for Women & Other Thoughts Towards Feminine Statecraft in the 21st Century. Written to expand on the themes in her feature documentary, Running in High Heels, Breschard creates a new political voice for the masses – left, right and center – who, like so much of America, is tired of moneyed interests turning back progress and is looking for real wisdom.
While exploring the intersection of feminism and finance, Breschard reminds women that they are the majority of the population, outnumbering men by the tens of millions, and are empowered to turn the world around any time they chose. All they have to do is shake off the calls of special interests that profit while holding them back and learn how to take the catfight that they usually inflict on each other to where it will do them the most good.
With something valuable for everyone to think about, American Catfight is 100+ pages of entertaining cultural criticism and well-suited for busy women wondering what is next, young women who Twitter and text, and anyone engaged with issues of political power. It is the first cohesive set of new feminist ideas presented in a long time.
