ANSAS CITY, Mo., March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — From Liberty to Magnolia: In Search of the American Dream is a true, powerful, and compelling story about the enduring scourge of sexism and racism in America. It shows how that double whammy plays out in the lives of women despite the great promise that the American Dream can be pursued by everyone. It shows how access to the playing field and the rules of the game are not equally and fairly applied among men and women even when women, blacks and whites, come prepared with equal or better qualifications and values to play the game. https://janicesellis.com/
This book is hopeful, filled with expectancy. From Liberty to Magnolia will help decent and fair-minded Americans—America as a nation—see how the country has been and continues to be enslaved by its own sense of freedom. This sense of freedom that boasts and finds it acceptable to persistently disrespect, deny, marginalize, and minimize the value of one of its largest and greatest assets—women—when there is overwhelming evidence that shows America has everything to gain by extending equal opportunity to all women, the majority of its citizenry.
“Women’s History Month highlights the double whammy women face,” says author Janice Ellis.
From Liberty to Magnolia: In Search of the American Dream is written for Americans from all walks of life who care deeply about how our great nation can become even greater if we boldly embrace the fact that we have more to gain by embracing and extending mutual respect and supporting equal rights and equal opportunity to women.
The book is a beacon for all who are concerned about America’s future and who want America’s girls of all colors to realize their full potential. It will inspire and empower men and women who are in positions—parents, teachers, policy makers, social and human rights activists, journalists, business leaders, faith leaders, caring Americans— to have the will to do something about it.
A Discussion Guide is included for book clubs, classes, and group forums.
