Summary
"The Bushwomen - the women appointed to the inner circle of the president's cabinet and sub-cabinet - are cast in the public mind as moderate, malleable, maverick, irrelevant or benign. Their carefully crafted images tap into stereotypes, while the reality of their records has remained out of sight ... until now." "This is the first book to investigate Bush's women, and to report on how they rose to power and what they've done. Find out why Chevron named a tanker after National security Advisor Condoleezza Rice; how financial ties to big tobacco corporations got Secretary of the Interior Gale Ann Norton dubbed "The Woman from Marlboro Country", how Labor Secretary Elaine Chao bullied union longshoreworkers to benefit her trading-with-China family and friends, read excerpts of Lynne Cheney's lesbian novel; and discover how Karen Hughes got her first job thanks to the National Organization for Women."--Jacket
