Suzanne Venker has written extensively about politics, parenting, and the influence of feminism on American society for more than a decade. She is the author of three books - How to Choose a Husband and Make Peace With Marriage (February 2013), The Flipside of Feminism (2011), and 7 Myths of Working Mothers (2004) - and one Kindle single: The War on Men (February 2013).

This Midwest-born, East Coast-educated writer is no stranger to controversy. Her first book, 7 Myths of Working Mothers, argues that young children and demanding careers are incompatible; The Flipside of Feminism is an explosive account of the damage left in the wake of the feminist movement; and her eBook original, The War on Men, is a concise, authoritative look at the myth of gender equality.
Suzanne's most recent book, How to Choose a Husband (And Make Peace with Marriage), takes a hard look at the sexual revolution and encourages women to reject the cultural script they've been sold about love, sex, men and marriage and adopt a whole new attitude toward men and marriage.
Suzanne lives in St. Louis, MO, with her husband and their two children. Her website is www.suzannevenker.com.

Karen Woodall is a family counselor who has worked with children and their families since 1991 and is focused on making sure relationship services are delivered in ways that are beneficial to both men and women. Karen delivers training and workshops for the Family Separation Clinic in London. She has also co-authored the book Putting Children First: A Handbook for Separated Parents with her husband, Nick Woodall.
Karen is very honed in on true gender equality - as opposed to the feminist variety. She has written for Oxfam on Gender Analysis, and her call for a United Equalities Movement gets to the heart of WFM's mission. "I consider feminism to be a deeply problematic, politically driven approach to supporting children and families, and I want it to stop. I work alongside my husband and other colleagues, and we have stopped delivering our services in a feminist paradigm. As a result, our practice around families has become safer, inclusive of the needs of men and women, as well as boys and girls. It allows them to be exactly who they are instead of forcing them to conform to my view of how they should be in the world. This is how I am being the change that I want to see."
Dr. Shawn Smith is a licensed psychologist in Denver, CO. His upcoming book, The Woman's Guide to How Men Think (February 2014) is a fantastic primer for women to help them navigate their romantic relationships by emphasizing men's needs and desires. "We view ourselves in terms of how useful we are," writes Smith. "This means we need someone to serve, and guess what: that's you. To a large degree, we view women in terms of how we can make their lives better. The women in our lives give us a point of reference for our effectiveness. Working for your affection and approval is in our bones."
Shawn's approach to gender relations is not rooted in the "women good/men bad" meme, which makes his expertise invaluable. When it comes to relationships, Shawn treats both sexes fairly and doesn't cave to politically correct, (aka harmful) ideas about gender relations. You can learn more about Shawn at ironshrink.com.
