We are CEOs, administrators, students, volunteers, business owners and line workers. But first and foremost, we are caretakers of home and family. We are women. And we hold America’s future in our hands.

“We are CEOs, administrators, students, volunteers, business owners and line workers. But first and foremost, we are caretakers of home and family. We are women. And we hold America’s future in our hands.”

With those words, Kimberly Fletcher, author of Women: America’s Last Best Hope, hopes to ignite the patriotism of yet another group of women. The just-released book teaches women how to be active political citizens without sacrificing what’s most important to them: home and family.

“At bottom, we’re all homemakers,” Fletcher says. “A homemaker is someone who conscientiously and proficiently makes sure a home runs the way it should and everyone in it is cared for. Being homemakers is what binds us together as women, no matter what else we do in our lives.”

Fletcher wants to educate homemakers on America’s history and their role in it. Then, as women share what they’ve learned with their families, friends and communities, “We will create a ripple of patriotism that will grow into a mighty wave, and everything that plagues our nation will disappear.”

She believes it’s already starting. The media dubbed 2009 as the Year of the Woman because unprecedented numbers of women ran for political office.

“The whole Mother Bear thing is true,” she says, referring to Sarah Palin’s comparison of the protective instincts of human and grizzly bear mothers. “Women are running for office because they’re concerned about their families, and they’re asking, ‘What can we do?’ My book shows them what they can do.”

Women: America’s Last Best Hope goes on sale Feb. 1. Buyers can preorder signed copies before then at kimberlyfletcher.com.
