Publisher's Description

Tired of inauthentic prattle, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America Penny Young Nance is ready to change the way women today engage the culture. In her debut title, Feisty & Feminine, she takes an honest and transparent look at what it means to be a conservative Christian woman with thoughtful commentary on the real issues confronting American women.

"Conservative women have never fit neatly into stereotypes, especially conservative Christian women," says Penny Young Nance. "We’re not the humorless, dim-witted ’church ladies’ Saturday Night Live has made us out to be. Today’s conservative women are intelligent, well-educated, compassionate, accomplished, funny, and fearless—and it’s time for us to stand up and be heard. In fact, we have an opportunity like never before to offer words of redemption to a world gone mad."

From Miley Cyrus to campus feminists, it’s clear that women are still searching for their voice in culture today. With Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016, there is even more of a need for a compelling, conservative, and credible female influence in the mix. Penny Nance is that woman. She is direct without being disrespectful, winsome but not shallow, and relevant while still holding to faith and conservative values.

Accepting the baton of leadership from their foremothers, today’s conservatives have emerged as intelligent, hard-working women of faith who not only deal with issues like life and marriage, but are also advocates for the free market, for rights of conscience, and for female victims of radical Islam. Passionate about their role in society, they refuse to turn a blind eye to the sexual exploitation of women or the hypocrisy surrounding women’s issues.

 The time is right for this book—and for conservative women everywhere to be part of the conversation.

Editorial Reviews

Concerned Women for America has been a strong voice for biblical values for many years now. In this engaging new book, Penny Young Nance gives a rallying cry for women everywhere to make their voices heard and impact the world around them on the issues that matter most.
This excellent book is for all women who want to stand up and be counted. Penny Nance has handled most of the controversial issues with dignity and honesty. As you read this thought-provoking book, you will find many ways to express your convictions as a Christian conservative woman. I heartily recommend this book for women who want to make a difference.
Penny Nance is a fearless culture warrior who takes opponents apart and shreds their shallow left-wing nonsense for the drivel it is. And she does it with a smile that belies her toughness. Penny proves that a conservative woman can be intellectually and spiritually prepared for anyone or anything---anytime. You’ll love her book, Feisty and Feminine, and will realize why liberals don’t want to be on the stage with her. They don’t like losing!
Penny’s book is conversational and fun, yet deep and insightful. She is a masterful (and very feisty and feminine!) ally in our work to build a culture of life. Feisty and Feminine communicates a timely and necessary message for women today who are seeking real truth and fulfillment.
Feisty and Feminine is an inspiring look at how a woman can be a conservative Christian while still being a powerful advocate for the rights of women and all other people. It is easy to read and very informative.
Penny Nance is one of today’s boldest and most outspoken conservative women of faith. In this book, Penny exposes who is really waging the “war on women,” and it’s not who you've been led to think it is. More feisty and informed women are exactly what our country needs.
I’ve known Penny Nance for twenty years, and I absolutely love her passion for Christ, her passion to advance freedom and opportunity for all Americans, and her passion to educate and empower a new generation of conservative women to help get America back on the right track. She’s a rare voice in Washington---courageous and classy. May her tribe increase!
Women are right to be concerned about the state of America and their families. Feminism has failed them. The good news is that women have a fearless champion in Penny Nance, who is proving every day that feisty and feminine is a winning combination!

Often the pages of a book will reflect the personality of its author. This one fits the bill---positive, straightforward, and dynamic. A real joy to read!

    If you've been reading for a while, you know that even though I don't talk about it much, I am very interested in politics. When I saw Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry For Conservative Women up for review, I had to request it! Penny Young Nance is the head of Concerned Women For America, a political action group for Christian conservative women - which I am one, so I was excited to read this book.

    I do actually read a decent amount of political books and I think of myself as fairly well-informed when it comes to current events and politics, so the raw information in this book wasn't too new to me - however, what I really appreciated was how Nance addressed the different issues.

    Weaved throughout this book are biblical truths as they apply to the political arena, and Nance does not lose any opportunity to present the gospel, which she does in a natural way. She talks about being "Esther Women", placed in this country "for such a time as this", and she gives different encouragements for what we can do to sway the culture and politics in a positive, biblical direction. Much of the information in this book is sobering, but rather than coming off as depressing, this book is inspiring.

    If you are not as up on political events, I think you would find this book very interesting and motivating. If you are like me and do stay updated on politics, there is still a lot for you here. After reading this book I am hoping to get in contact with the CWA chapter in my state - it sounds like a great organization. This is one of my favorite political books in recent years - I definitely recommend it!

    Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review. This is my honest opinion.

    Penny shares a compelling, conservative and yet compassionate perspective to issues facing our world right now: devaluation of women, marriage, sanctity of life, religious extremism, Israel and balance. For each topic she presents the conservative perspective along with the facts and cultural implications of apathy, political correctness and inaction. I appreciate this book for so many reasons. I enjoyed Pennys personal stories as well as the facts and information she shares to equip us for civil yet difficult conversations with people who disagree. Penny presents rationale for beliefs which are rarely given airtime and I appreciated hearing her perspective, unfiltered. While I am not an activist, Penny did challenge me to not sit idly by either. The knowledge she shares in this book equipped me with questions to ask when a conversation Im in shifts into one of these political hot topics and how to continue to support women in the real battles we face every day. If you are socially conservative then this book will equip and empower you to stand up for what you believe or at least be confident and courageous in your resolve to believe what you believe.
