Think You Know Women? You Have No Idea!
The Shesaurus is America’s first women’s dictionary-thesaurus that dare to go where no other reference book has gone before. The Shesaurus is the ultimate study guide that focuses on society’s characterization of women from the 19th century romantic Victorian to today’s Hip Hop Video Vixen.
The Shesaurus is a compilation of every idiom society has caste on women over the years. Women are under constant scrutiny and inspection, it seems the more power we gain the more labels we have attached to our name. This book goes beyond Hesiod’s Catalogue of Women; it is a journey through history’s influence on the female community.

Please be advised. This book contains adult language not suitable for younger or immature audiences. Reader and viewer discretion is advised.
Some of the words in this book are demeaning and derogatory. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize, in advance, if the book offends anyone. As a woman, I would never intentionally create something to harm or insult my fellow secret garden carriers. I do believe it is necessary for everyone to know the true meaning and origin of terms frequently used in our everyday life. I couldn’t discriminate against any word, no matter how repulsed I was to include it. To alert readers of any derogatory words, I inserted the abbreviation: Derog. So please proceed with extreme, ‘think twice’ caution before using any derogatory words. As a writer, I’ve always wanted a resource guide that provides options for even the most unflattering synonyms not found in your typical dictionary or thesaurus. I hope you find The Shesaurus fun, resourceful and educational. I learned a great deal while researching these terms. Many of the terms can also apply to men but that will be for the follow up book entitled, The Hesaurus. Again, thank you for all of your support and interest in the book. Enjoy.
Rosie the Riveter
There was a time when women were not allowed to vote. There was a time when women wore long frocks to cover their knees because they were forbidden to show any skin. There was a time when women had no business running a business, let alone having a voice to speak. Ladies we’ve come a long, long way from having no rights at all, to owning our own companies. We can balance a career and raise a family without missing a beat. This book gives cheers to the women of the world and their influences on our future generations. I thank the many women pioneers for paving the way so that we may become doctors, lawyers, judges, directors, writers and even sexy pin-ups. I love being a woman. I feel so lucky and proud to be apart of this growing generation. We no longer have to apologize for being powerful, sexually charged or smarter. If we got it, we work it! The following is sample of America’s first women’s dictionary-thesaurus. I have researched a huge amount of slanguage used to label women, this is just a glimpse. The words were chosen randomly.
