The media and many politicians have defined todays American woman as a bra-burning liberal who sees men as competitors and children as burdens. According to them, women want federal bureaucrats to run our schools. They need churches to pay for prescriptions that violate religious faith. They trust big government and mistrust our military, and they care more about obscure endangered species than endangered American jobs. Any woman who defies these stereotypes is marginalized and ignored particularly if her outlook is bold, strong, conservative, and Christian. Scottie Hughes emphatically rejects those stereotypesand with a ROAR, refuses to be ignored. She describes the strength of the new conservative woman in everyday life and politics, from her deep faith and spirituality to her love for family and children to her independence and refusal to participate in a manufactured war against men.
Scottie Nell Hughes, a conservative journalist, appears on Fox News and other national media weekly. A magna cum laude graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin, she is also the news director, spokeswoman, and chief contributor for the Tea Party News Network and was among the first group of radio talk show hosts sent by the Department of Defense to travel to the front lines of Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq and Kuwait as well as the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. She lives in Hendersonville, TN.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Encouragement to Roar but no suggestions on how to do itSeptember 17, 2014bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2Hughes has written this book because she wants Conservative women to speak out, to not shy away from battles. She wants Conservative women to know they are not alone in their quest to save the family. Conservative women need to know the strength they have and the influence they can have through social media.
She writes about parental freedom in raising children. My biggest fear is that the government will continue to weave in and out of the family dynamic until we will no longer be able to make choices according to our own discernment. (86) She gives her opinions on motherhood, birth control devices, education, the disarmament of women, the media, freedom of religion, women in combat (not), the (supposed) gender gap, climate change, and more.
Hughes is quick to make it clear that she is a biased journalist, believing that her opinion is correct and supported by facts. (120)
If you believe the Left can do no right and the Right can do no wrong, you'll love this book. It is definitely a book for Republican women as Hughes writes about cooking meals, being sexy in bed, dating in college, being a mommy, etc.
I was bothered by Hughes' style of writing. She is really in your face, so to speak. I found it interesting that she writes of the Left, I think the key element missing in today's media is respect... (121) But she uses phrases like mindless voters, Leftist loonies, Liberal vultures, and President Obama and his mindless toadies. If she honestly wants to criticize lack of respect on the Left, then I would think she would show some in return. I don't listen to the rhetoric from the Right (nor from the Left, for that matter), so I was a a bit shocked by her language of attack.
Hughes writes, The weakest link in the Conservative movement today unfortunately falls on the shoulders of the female. (5) She wants Conservative women to speak out, to make their voice heard. I'm all for it, as long as we remain respectful before God and our fellow man (and woman).
This book is a combination of thoughts on being a woman and encouragement for women to find their voice. I've never wanted to be a model for Victoria's Secret nor have I had my bikini line waxed, so I had difficulty identifying with some of Hughes' thoughts on being a woman. Women for whom concepts like that are important will like this book.
I wish there had been some practical suggestions for women on how to speak out. Hughes has given a great deal of encouragement to do so but has failed to tell women what they can do and how they can do it.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
