In this lively contrarian romp through the American cultural landscape, Andrea Tantaros argues that the swapping of gender roles has had a drastic effect on relationships, families, the boardroom, the bedroom, and beyond. Women today have more choices and options than ever. So why are they so stressed out? In a covetous quest to attain what men have, women have been told they should work like men, behave like men, and have sex like men. There's just one problem: women aren't men. Instead of feeling at peace with their newfound freedoms, females are finding themselves tied up in knots-trying to strike a balance between their natural desires and what society dictates. Conservative political analyst and co-host of Fox News' Outnumbered and The Five exposes the pitfalls that are entangling women everywhere thanks to the rise of female power, revealing the mass confusion it's caused among both sexes, and arguing that decades of progress for women hasn't brought the happiness they were promised. With scathing wit and insight born of personal experience, Tantaros calls out those sending the wrong messages to American woman, including Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus, Mika Brzezinski, Kim Kardashian, and Kris Jenner, and praises those who get it right like Beyonce and Millionaire Matchmaker's Patti Stanger. She explores how women have taken men off the hook in dating, much to their own detriment, and exposes how we've become a sex and selfie obsessed nation that has damagingly traded intimacy for relentless self-exposure. Tied Up in Knots is the gut-check women need to assess the state of their personal unions, and to help them find out what they really want while staying true to their authentic selves.
