Big Girls Don't Cry free pdf First-wave feminism takes front and center in this fearless novel, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, about women determined to succeed in a man's world--only to be foiled by their own ambition"A Woman Needs a Man Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle." It's the 1970s, and the sexual revolution is just beginning. Four women have decided to open a feminist publishing house. Named in honor of the gorgon who turned men's hearts to stone, MedusaPublishing gives the so-called Four Furies a platform for speaking out against female oppression. Layla is a wealthy, fundamental radical, intolerant of anyone whose ideals deviate, even slightly, from her own--that is, until she finds herself seduced by a married man- tiny Alice is "all mind and very little matter," until she discovers the dangerous New Age practice of goddess worship- Stephanie leaves her unfaithful husband in pursuit of sexual fulfillment with other men--and women- and Nancy, tired of washing her fiance's socks, discovers she has a remarkable mind for business. "Big Girls Don't Cry "is the story of four women who are determined to change the world, and who, over the course of two-and-a-half decades, ultimately transform themselves.
