As If Women Mattered

(2014)
A novel by

 
1972 - A time of war and Watergate, of Ms. Magazine and consciousness raising. As the post-World War II era of peace, prosperity, and pointy bras gives way to the life-expanding changes of the women's movement, four women meet and over the course of two decades, create a space that allows them all to thrive, with humor and irreverence, as they each struggle to reconcile the realities of adult life with the expectations of youth.

"Virginia DeLuca's captivating novel, 'As If Women Mattered', fuses compelling social drama with page-turning storytelling. Four women, whose consciousness-raising group becomes a life-long, life-saving family of the heart, wrestle with marriage, motherhood, careers and sex, during a time when no one knew the rules anymore, and it was all up for grabs. The entwined stories of these women will keep you up way past midnight, experiencing the extraordinary era when women rose up and found their voices, and each other."

Randy Susan Meyers, International Bestselling Author of "The Murderer's Daughters" and "The Comfort of Lies"

"'As If Women Mattered' takes me vividly back to my own experiences in the early second-wave women's movement and, in its characters' lives, highlights many of the dynamics and issues that made those years so fascinating, so fraught and so fruitful. Thank you especially, Ginny DeLuca, for following the ongoing friendship between these four women over time."

Wendy Sanford, cofounder and coauthor, "Our Bodies, Ourselves"
