“Laura Flanders offers a galvanizing vision of political democracy as it was meant to thrive: in the lives and stories of ordinary Americans.” -Michael Eric Dyson
“Bushwomen is the perfect antidote to cynical politics and corporate spin. As we’ve come to expect from Flanders, it’s a terrific read and just what we need—an accessible account of the far Right’s drive to power, and the women who front it.” – Susan Sarandon
“Fierce, funny and intelligent, Bushwomen fills an important gap…” – Publishers Weekly
