Book Description

The attacks on a women’s right to choose to have a legal abortion in the US are vile and unprecedented.

Mostly white male Republican/GOP controlled state legislatures in 45 US states introduced 944 separate ALEC model sponsored bills controlling women’s reproductive rights and freedoms between January – March 2012.

On this book’s National Equal Pay Day release date, despite there being a National Fair Pay law, women earn $0.77 on the dollar compared to their male counterparts.

You can clearly see that this War is real.

In this second book in the WTF are They Doing? series, Denis G. Campbell, editor of UK Progressive Magazine, looks in-depth at the origins of the GOP’s War on Women and its impact on the 2012 US Presidential Election.
He examines how it all started and its insidiously deep and far-reaching tentacles,
• the broader corporate-funded plan by ALEC to derail women’s workplace rights and equal pay,
• the disgusting battle for control of their reproductive system, uteruses and vaginas,
• the utter paternalistic humiliation of women via state mandated forced vaginal ultrasounds to bully and scare women at an extremely vulnerable and scarring moment when most civilised nations offer counselling and support and the sneering,
• total disregard for anything that promotes a woman’s upward mobility, striving for work-life balance and real economic growth.

As the character Sam Seaborn in ‘The West Wing’ pilot episode says, “well, this is bad on so many levels.”

As the father of three daughters, uncle to many nieces and a 1st time grandfather to a brilliant 3-year old little lady, I seethe with rage that a bunch of mostly white, ignorant Republican/GOP/Tea Party men are voting inside state legislature star chambers to exclude 52% of the population from discussion on issues affecting THEIR gender alone simply… because they can.

Having reported on and written about paternalistic societies in the Middle East, Persia, Western Asia and Northern Africa for the book Egypt Unshackled, this behaviour is every bit as loathesome as the Middle Eastern Sharia-law based societies they claim to so loathe. In those societies, they too believe that only men know what is best for women. Yet these white men in the US routinely pass silly ‘for-show’ laws to ban Sharia Law whilst practising a form of it themselves?

They then use sophisticated messaging, political SPIN, surrogate pundits and lie through their teeth to claim it is President Obama who is waging an ‘economic’ war on women to divert attention from their war?

WTF are they doing?

5.0 out of 5 stars Note to GOP: This is Not Your Hippy Mother's Vagina! April 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These days, I daily resist grabbing my crotch. It is a new fear-based reaction since the presidential primaries went south on sex, and I do not think I am alone. My complex Michael Jackson moments are brought to me because of the Grand Old Party, the same folks many of us have been fighting over sex and privacy since back in the 1960s...and 50s...and 20s...and...

Certainly, many of us remember The Vagina Monologues, those powerful and crusty episodic essays about a woman's private parts and sexual experiences, first presented as a play in 1996. Every story falls back on The Vagina; all are short essays about love and rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, topped off with a special monologue on The Big O. Lovingly and beautifully treated, frightening, refreshing, disgusting and witty. The entire package brought a big wink-wink from Off Broadway theatre when it opened.

After the excitement of Eve Ensler's play about womanhood waned, most theatre lovers moved on, except for catching up with her yearly contributions that often focus on global women's themes.

As women (and men, too) were moving forward, especially in the hippy 60s when we were fighting for a myriad of civil rights and social justice, almost getting somewhere in this country's rare dialogue on sexual honesty - we certainly never expected a giant rip to appear on the very most private part of our bodies, and in 2012 for God's sake.

This new, jagged tear (requiring numerous stitches) comes directly from the Republicans, the GOP - the folks who brought us Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, three white, foolish, men who honestly believe they should take over our our bodies!

Now, here comes a Brit to our rescue, and bless his soul!

5.0 out of 5 stars thoughtful, insightful read May 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it's often difficult to wrap one's head around what is really going on in American politics... What the F*** Are They Doing is a difficult question to answer. Denis Campbell gives us some understanding of the often scary answers to that question. What they are trying to do is drag American Women, kicking and screaming, back to the 50's. If the GOP get their way, we might as well all put on our June Cleaver dress and pearls and start dusting and vacuuming in our high heels. More men should be as incensed as Mr. Campbell is about the war the GOP is waging against not just the American woman, but basic human rights!! Read this book, but be prepared to be seriously PO'd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book.l May 14, 2012

This book is well written and informative. Tea Party women would do themselves a favor by reading this book too. There are people who say there is no War on Women, but all they have to do is look at the 1000+ bills congress has written to deny our rights to make decisions about our own body's.

There is a real attack on womens rights going on right now and the more information we get the more we can protect ourselves from this onslaught of the GOP congress. This book gives you the information.

Denis Campbell has done a huge favor to women by writing This book. I hope by his next book women's rights won't be an issue.

Author of the book Egypt Unshackled, he detailed the events of 18 days of revolution in Cairo via the social media communications of those on the ground.

In Lipstick on THIS Pig? - the 1st e-book in this WTF Are they Doing? series, he talked about how far off the rails the Republican/GOP/Tea Party has ventured via their collective ODS (Obama derangement Syndrome).

In The Vagina Wars and The Vagina Wars on Steroids he details the GOP's War on Women, from wages to the Pill, abortion to Donna Reed stereotypes, the US Republican Party is racing backwards to the 1940s at breakneck speed. He also examines the impact of the general battle on the 99%, the mendacity of the current GOP candidate and the obscene amount of money in the political process.

His latest, Magic Underwear in the Situation Room examines the USA's first ever Mormon candidate for president, the history of that church, questions whether a member of the LDS Church can be supported by the RW Christian conservatives currently and the social issues ruling the election cycle.

He writes from a 200-year-old farmhouse aHe writes from a 200-year-old farmhouse atop the breath-taking cliffs of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. This is a place where history saw landowners crash returning ships from the Asian spice trade on the rocks below by tying lanterns to sheep necks and then use the timbres of those wrecked ships to build a pub behind a circa 1100 monastery's remains where the brothers brewed their own beer and their carousing was the bane of the Abbot of Neath.
Wales is a land of great stories and there is no better place on earth from which to tell them.
