“To change the world for the better … women must work together… out of the deep feminine values of caring, compassion and courage we bring whatever we have to the common table of women …when we work together we benefit the entire society.”
~ Alice Walker, Author of “The Color Purple”
It is said that “life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” This riveting treasury of life-altering experiences offers a rare, intimate glimpse into the hearts and souls of some of California’s most notable women including accomplished political, business, philanthropic and spiritual leaders.
The collection unites remarkable women around the state creating a team of writers with a two-fold purpose: to instill greater awareness of the critical roles that women play in building a better world and to awaken readers with important insights about leadership and becoming an unstoppable force for change.
Contributing writers share their personal stories with other successful women from fields such as politics, entrepreneurship, media, law, education, philanthropy, athletics, science, religion, military, technology, products, services, the arts and more. Profits will be donated to the Women’s Foundation of California.
Each of these extraordinary women shares one special moment that changed her in a significant way – teaching, inspiring and motivating readers with a powerful life lesson.
“I now have a new definition of power. It’s passing on what we have learned to create meaningful change for others through these experiences,” says Maria Shriver, former First Lady of California. “That’s the only kind of power that truly matters.”
