On the Shoulders of Mighty Women: A Modern Feminist's Guide to an Equitable, Diverse World
Author Lesley Michaels takes you on an exploration of life, womanhood, feminism, and the often-disorienting effects of the three colliding as women struggle to hold up more than just their half of the sky.
Women represent all races, cultures, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations. As they establish a new ethos of equality and equity among themselves, each one in every community - from elders to our current generation of children and those still to come - will be positively impacted. It is our time to rise and be loud, be bold, to be unapologetic in our demand for benevolent equality and equity in the lives of each person. It is our time to reach back and lift one with us as we rise.
Everything Lesley Michaels writes about being a woman is fascinating and enlightening. For instance, did you know the measurable economic value of gender diversity? As Michaels points out, companies in the top quartile for gender diversity outperform their competitors by 15%. On the Shoulders of Mighty Women encourages all women to be all they can be. It's a step-by-step guide, full of encouraging stories and abundant opportunities for
self-assessment and self-transcendence. The value of this book is beyond price.
