From the author of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Other Women" comes a new book "Women’s Work is Never Done: Celebrating Everything Women Do" by .J Gallagher
“My mother used to shake her head and sigh. ‘Women’s work is never done.’ As a girl, I didn’t know what she meant. Today I know. I’ve learned that the phrase ‘working woman’ is redundant. All women work – most in their homes, many in the workplace, some in their communities, others in their places of worship – and all of us work just to keep body and soul together! We build and nurture relationships with friends and family. We communicate our desires, demonstrate our feelings, navigate our way through busy days and complex lives. We ovulate, menstruate, gestate, procreate, lactate, meditate, create, animate, illustrate, agitate, aggravate, debate, propagate, litigate, delegate, compensate, radiate, and emulate. Some women even levitate and aviate! Women’s work is cyclical, never ending, ever evolving, always important. This book is a celebration of women who work – and that’s all of us!”
~ BJ Gallagher, from the Introduction to Women’s Work is Never Done (Conari Press, March 2006)
Not to be confused with Alice’s famous remark on a memorable episode of the Honeymooners, “Men work from sun to sun, but women’s work is never done,” Women’s Work is Never Done by BJ Gallagher celebrates the fact that women’s work is never done because it’s never meant to be done. Women are meant to nourish and grow themselves and others, throughout their lives, and Gallagher’s book acknowledges and affirms it.
Twenty-six brief chapters outline ways from A to Z in which women fulfill their destinies in their families, communities, and friendships. Each is told through an original poem, story, or essay – plus inspirational quotes and informative sidebars – all components that make Gallagher’s books so widely and wildly popular.
Readers will find practical tips and suggestions for enhancing their well-being, while at the same time living, working, and playing to their fullest. Some pages of this beautifully designed gift book will make you laugh, others may bring a tear to your eye, still others may move you to pick up the phone and call a special woman in your life. All are guaranteed to lift your spirit, touch your heart, and lighten your load.
