Book Shelf: Leslie Bennetts’s “The Feminine Mistake”

Today’s modern woman is all about independence. She breaks out her own toolbox to fix a leaky faucet, enjoys alone time with her favorite book every Sunday afternoon, and shops for polished power suits with her own paycheck. She’s the ultimate multitasker and a juggling expert, because these days women can have their cake and eat it too.

So, if women are aspiring to have it all, why are more and more female professionals giving up their careers and relying on their husbands to foot the bill? Why are so many women making the classic “Feminine Mistake”? Leslie Bennetts is on a mission to find out, and remind women everywhere that independence is more than a luxury—it’s a necessity—and every woman deserves to know the real reason why.

In “The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much?”, Leslie challenges women to take their independence all the way to the bank and take responsibility for their futures. Talking with real women about their personal experiences of making the feminine mistake – choosing a lifestyle of economic dependency—she gets to the bottom of why a man is not a financial plan.

Leslie’s candid interviews and hard-hitting facts pack a powerful punch and a valuable lesson that women of all ages can take to heart, and Dress for Success believes in her message. “The Feminine Mistake” tells women that becoming economically independent is the first step on their journey to success, and that having a family and a career can be one of the most rewarding milestones along the way.
