No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power

In her new book, feminist icon Gloria Feldt gives women real strategies to change their thinking and reclaim their power:

No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power

In No Excuses, Feldt asserts that today nobody is keeping women from parity—except themselves. Combining extensive research, her personal experience as former CEO and president of the Planned Parenthood Federation, and interviews with dozens of women politicians, business owners, and activists, Feldt concludes that the doors of opportunity are open; however at the rate women are leading the way through the doors, it will take 70 years to reach parity with their male counterparts.

Feldt gives women 9 Ways to overcome the external and internal barriers keeping them from their own power and leadership. No Excuses has nine chapters, each organized around a specific power tool that will help women change the way they think—and the way they act—so they can lead unlimited lives.

Starting on October 11, join Gloria Feldt for 9 Ways in 9 Weeks: a conversation about how you can apply the power tools in No Excuses to your own life. Feldt will share interviews with amazing and inspiring women as well as her thoughts and links to resources. Each week a different power tool will be posted, topics will be presented, and discussion will take place.
