Advance praise for The 51% Minority

“Frequently we hear that young women don’t realize how many battles have been fought to guarantee them the rights they enjoy today. In The 51% Minority, Lis Wiehl recalls that history and points out what is left to be done for American women to achieve full equality.”
–Geraldine A. Ferraro, former vice presidential candidate

“Yes! Finally! Here is the hidden history of the women’s movement in America. The political and legal drama in these pages is at the heart of any true history of American civil rights.”
–Juan Williams, NPR, senior correspondent

“With wit, eloquence, and insight, Lis Wiehl explores what women need to do–personally and politically–to achieve equal treatment.”
–Deborah L. Rhode, director, Stanford Center on Ethics

“An important discussion of the many ways in which women in the United States remain unequal in the twenty-first century. In clear, understandable language, and with compelling accounts of real women’s stories, this book is a must-read for anyone concerned about women’s full and equal participation in our society.”
–Lenora M. Lapidus, director, Women’s Rights Project, ACLU

“Equal rights for all should be non-negotiable. Lis Wiehl shows why we as women must stop taking no for an answer and exactly how to do just that. The 51% Minority should be in every woman’s house, whether homemaker, CEO, or both.”
–Barbara Corcoran, co-author of Use What You’ve Got

“A serious and timely wake-up call. Wiehl explains how many of our treasured rights are under attack and how we must respond. Every woman in America should read this book.”
–Catherine Crier, anchor, Court TV and bestselling author
