"This book is perfectly timed to give momentum to the global tipping point which recognizes that when women thrive, everyone thrives. Reading and sharing the Iron Butterflies will help earn your wings." --Lisa Witter, co-author with Lisa Chen of The She Spot: Why Women are the Market for Changing the World and How to Reach Them
"Reading Iron Butterflies made me more determined to pursue the cause of women in Afghanistan. It is true that the stories and struggles of Afghan women are different from those of our sisters in developed countries. But no matter in what level of society we are struggling, we need to keep our feminine touch in order to make a difference at the leadership level. The Iron Butterflies in this book showed great courage by penetrating men's domains with a new gift to make our world more human and more beautiful."
--Fatima Gailani, president of the Red Crescent in Afghanistan
"This intellectual and dynamic treatise on women in the modern workplace demonstrates convincingly how empathy, emotional strength and an embrace of vulnerability are changing traditional, male-dominated management models. Declaring the Era of Women, Regine celebrates big picture thinkers as well as mindful feelers, a powerful message reinforced by the impressive professional biographies of each subject." --Publishers Weekly (web-exclusive)
"Iron Butterflies is especially essential reading for young women who often fail to appreciate just how hard-won are the opportunities they enjoy today. Nor do they realize, as Ms. Regine points out, that sexual discrimination still exists--as they'll find out when their heads start thudding against the glass ceiling. It's also an important book for men, who need to learn that they've got to get with the program or get out of the way. In fact, if they too adapt some of women's ways in the working world, they may not only find they can breathe a sigh of relief, but, in the long run, achieve more success....The word 'inspiring' is tossed around way too frequently. But in its depiction of the hardships that many of these women endured, sometimes from their earliest ages, and their emotional resilience and flexibility, this book inspires." --Russ Wellen, The Huffington Post
