When I was a child, my mother, Helen Andelin, started what we now call the original 1st wave Fascinating Womanhood movement. This was in the very early 60’s. It was a pro-feminine crusade that was in stark contrast to the feminist movement of her day.
I remember seeing success stories coming in the mail (no internet then). When my mother read some of them to us, I was thrilled that the principles were changing marriages and relationships and helping people around the world. I was witness to some of the many miracles that Fascinating Womanhood principles inspired.
While the 1960’s feminist movement had some redeeming factors to it such as better laws to protect women from domestic abuse, equal pay for equal work done and improved stalking laws, it also had a very dark side to it that hurt women then, and evolved into a much more evil force today.
This dark under belly consisted primarily of a basic distrust, disrespect, anger and even hatred towards men as well as introducing abortion rights for women—the killing of a woman’s own pre-born children. These problems have made it impossible for many feminine, maternal and loving women to accept and embrace the movement then, as well as today, regardless of the positive goals it had reached.
The feminist movement started so long ago, today, is even darker and more insidious with the fight for abortion—even late-term abortion, and selling fetal body parts—on demand and paid for by tax payers. In addition, there is now an attempt to try to make the idea of gender neutrality not only believable but acceptable. And men are still hated and distrusted more than ever with talk of “toxic masculinity” and “destroying the patriarchy.”
The books, Fascinating Womanhood and my new book, Fascinating Womanhood for the Timeless Woman, are two pillars that truly support women—they are companion volumes that validate and build on each other. Together, they can help women reclaim femininity, inspire masculinity and support women from every nation to create lifelong love affairs that will strengthen families—the very foundation of all countries.
Our 2nd wave PRO-FEMININE Fascinating Womanhood movement is for all women, no matter your ethnicity, race or religion. Together, using the principles of both Fascinating Womanhood books, we can change the world for the better. Femininity has more power than you can imagine. The hope for peace in this world depends on the stability of our marriages and families. Join us and enjoy being a fascinating and feminine woman!
