As the former president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, Feldt (The War on Choice) has years of experience in shepherding feminist causes. In her latest book she examines how women can move past low societal expectations, learn to embrace their ambitions to advance feminism, and achieve equality by addressing power and leadership. Feldt focuses on Hillary Clinton's campaign for president and several female business executives and entrepreneurs, illustrating how women can mobilize support to advance everyone. Her advice is sharp, well-documented, and supported by anecdotal evidence. She manages to balance a generous feeling of support with a sense of urgency; though women are moving closer to equality, Feldt argues that they remain in danger of losing their gains and offers a great deal of practical advice for women who want to be active in politics, business, or their personal lives. With heartfelt encouragement and a push for empowerment through equality (including strategies for including men in feminist causes), this guide is accessible to all.
