Women and Personal Power: The Ways It’s Been Taken From Us and How We Can Get It Back
Reclaim your own authority and explore the history of women’s struggle for a recognized voice heard by all. Women have always had to fight for their rights. Even now there are those who would strip women of their hard earned social victories. The first part of this book explores the roles that religion, race, and politics played in shaping American society’s expectations of women. The two middle chapters address how cultural views of female sexuality and sexual assault have so negatively impacted women in their quest for personal and social rights. The remaining chapters examine the many ways that women have been trained to surrender their personal power and what must be done to reclaim it. There are numerous suggestions about what you can do to claim the power that you didn’t know you had. You will certainly be more enlightened regarding how you give it away. Hopefully you become uncomfortable enough that as a woman you will do everything you can to embrace your personal power. As a male you will want your wife and daughters to claim their power. As an informed person you will be supportive of those who do. Good luck to all of you. It’s hard work, it’s exciting, and the journey is worth it!
