Clovis Kingsley, powerful, pro-family, anti-feminist ideologue and author of The Power of Total Submission, has been assassinated during a testimonial dinner. A TV news reporter is assigned to uncover the story of Kingsley's life, which is reconstructed in fractured and contradictory flashbacks by those who knew her - her family and followers, her hairdresser, the maid. The manifest subject of A Man's Woman is the formation of political identity: how is it that Phyllis Schlafly grew up to be Phyllis Schlafly when she could have been Betty Friedan?
