“Is hell a male-only club?” Frederica asks this provocative question as she takes us on a journey through her early years as a feminist, a conversion experience to Christianity, and the realization that men and women are unique yet equal. She gives us glimpses into her meetings with prominent feminists, takes us through Crisis Pregnancy Centers and explores the idea of early marriage as a way to mature and healthy adulthood. Sure to make you think and react, this is a great book to give to friends, for lively discussions on some of the most important issues facing us today.
