Alice in Womanland

Alice in Womanland or The Feminine Mistake by Margaret Bennett: a pseudonym for Barbara Toohey and June Biermann.

Published by Prentice-Hall, 1967. Hardback with dustjacket.

A ‘satirical overview of the condition of the American woman’. There’s a nice little article about it here.

Chapters include “The Housewife Drink Me,” The Career Drink Me,” The Art Patroness Drink Me,” “The Motherhood Drink Me” and “The Playmate Drink Me.”

Toohey and Biermann’s other books range from travel (From Baedeker to Worse) to sports (skiing and biking), but when Biermann became diabetic, they began writing about that (The Peripatetic Diabetic: Good Health, Good Times, and Good Food for the Diabetic Who Wants to Have It All). And when Biermann suffered a stroke, they wrote about the life and experiences of sufferer and carer (The Stroke Book: A Guide to Life After Stroke for Survivors and Those Who Care for Them).

Available on Amazon: Alice in Womanland ~ Or The Feminine Mistake
