Turning on the Girls

(2001)
A novel by

 
In the wickedly amusing Turning on the Girls, Cheryl Benard proves herself to be truly an equal-opportunity satirizer.It's the year 2000-something. A decade ago, the world's power was seized by women, and since then things have been wonderful...or at least they will be -- just as soon as the new rulers finish fixing things. Meet Lisa, a dedicated young employee ready to do her part. Why does she have stacks of pornography and romance novels on her desk? It's her job: To come up with politically correct fantasies for women. No more lovesick simpering, no more masochistic daydreams! Women are going to learn to be turned on by healthier, more dignified fantasies -- as soon as Lisa can come up with some.Good thing she has her trusty assistant, Justin. About to graduate from the men's reeducation program, Justin's ready to do whatever it takes to make this project a success. But elsewhere, male discontent ferments: Harmony, a secret men's movement, is planning an uprising to reclaim world power. It's up to Lisa and Justin to infiltrate Harmony. Before long they find themselves in Zone Six -- where the unreformable men reside -- on the run, trying to save the world as they know it.
