The Perfect Gift for Women Ready to Change the World

Packed with stories of ordinary women doing extraordinary things, this book is a must-have for any woman who has ever dreamt of a better world.

"Every woman's voice is a spark that can fuel our collective fire. This book shares stories of individual women whose courage to speak up launched movements to empower girls and women around the globe. These stories bear witness to women's power to lift each other up, and they will inspire each of us to add our own voice to the growing chorus for equality and women's rights." - Michelle Travis, author of Dads For Daughters and My Mom Has Two Jobs

Be inspired by this compelling tour de force of sisterhood. Shelly Rachanow's book is full of powerful, courageous women who are getting vitally important sh*t done. Dive into this empowering narrative and read about:
• A trauma surgeon working to stem the epidemic of gun violence • A professor who ran for office to provide a better role model for her sons • An educator raising India's poorest girls out of poverty • Teens fighting for clean water, inspiring future generations to continue their work • A group of firefighters training to trek across Antarctica, raising awareness for mental health and showing young girls that they are strong and can be anything they choose • Activists from around the world fighting the injustices of inequality and patriarchy One small action can inspire a movement. As these women have shown, a movement can change minds. . .and ultimately the world.

If you enjoyed books like Badass Affirmations, Bad Girls Throughout History, The Book of Gutsy Women, or Made Out of Stars, then you'll love When Women Run the World, Sh*t Gets Done.
