Teaser Tuesdays: Wonder Women

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection by Debora L. Spar p. 69

"Ironically, though, part of what drives the hookup culture is a desire for young women to have it all; a desire for a Sex and the City lifestyle full of clothes, shoes, jobs, and (multiple, revolving, ancillary) men. Because young women today are so ambitious, many will insist, and because they have so many options to pursue during their teens and early twenties, hooking up gives them an efficient way to tend to their physical needs without compromising their careers or education."

The problem is that this is not necessarily women being equal with men, but instead imitating men's lifestyle which doesn't fulfill all of women's needs or work with their deep brain wiring.

Interesting idea, though hook-ups aren't as emotionally satisfying as meaningful relationships (IMHO).
My Teaser is from KATIE & THE IRISH TEXAN.

That's an interesting concept. It makes me curious to hear more of what the author has to say. Thanks for sharing!
