In late 2015,I remember coming across my classic edition of Fascinating Womanhood.I decided to do a online search on any up to date websites and blogs dedicated to Fascinating Womanhood. That is when I found the new Fascinating Womanhood website created by Helen Andalin’s daughter Dixie Andalin Forsyth. Through this new site,I found out that not only were they going to update Helen’s books,but that Dixie was in the process of writing a sequel to Fascinating Womanhood. I was ecstatic and could not wait for the next book to come out.
Fast forward to November 2018. After waiting over 2 years for this book to come out, I can tell you this book is everything I ever wished for and more.
Regaining our Femininity
Timeless is separated into 3 sections.The first section is about reclaiming our femininity.This section delves into the 3 most important things about reclaiming our femininity.
1.) That we are stronger then we our by regaining our strength that have been taken from us.
2.) By explaining what feminism is.The good,the bad,and the downfall.
3.) Destroying the myth that women are weak.
The second section of the book is about Inspiring Masculinity.It is very similar to the section in Fascinating womanhood Vintage about Understanding men. With the day and age where masculinity is being misunderstood and extinguish.It shows women not to be afraid or ashamed of our differences between men and women.
Creating a Love Affair
The final section is about creating a lifelong love affair .It talks about the 4 levels of relationships which is important to for a successful relationship. My favorite charter right now is about girlishness.Now if you are a fan of the classic or vintage edition of Fascinating Womanhood, you might be familiar with the chapter about Childlikeness.
Many women over the years have read the book and think that the book is telling women to act childish and to throw tantrums when we cant get our way. So with the new book ,they changed the name to girlishness to make sure to take the stigma from this particular chapter.
Since the original book was published in the 1960s, many feminist have come to disregard this book and give it a bad name.This book is to complement the original,and gives the power that feminists have taken from women.If you like the original Fascinating womanhood,you will love timeless.
