Our women authors know you don’t have the time or interest to read lengthy discussions, so they write to briefly teach from their own experience, telling how they maneuvered past the obstacles, acquired specific skills, and met their goals. These influential women authors explain how they have learned to embrace and use external power, to develop the self-esteem and the vision needed to weather potential obstacles, and to connect with other women through supportive relationships. Readers of Leading Women can apply these insights to their own lives right away.
Each expert’s section reveals specific tools they discovered were essential for them to make their place in the world. They acknowledge the difficulties of living in a society that binds them to unnatural and impossible expectations, and serve as role models both for facing failures and accepting accomplishments.

And the world needs for them to do that. The stories, expertise and advice in this book can marry these two needs.
