From the Inside Flap
With A WOMAN'S WORTH, Marianne Williamson turns her charismatic voice--and the same empowering, spiritually enlightening wisdom that energized her landmark work, A RETURN TO LOVE-- to exploring the crucial role of women in the world today. Drawing deeply and candidly on her own experiences, the author illuminates her thought-provoking positions on such issues as beauty and age, relationships and sex, children and careers, and the reassurance and reassertion of the feminine in a patriarchal society. Cutting across class, race, religion, and gender, A WOMAN'S WORTH speaks powerfully and persuasively to a generation in need of healing, and in search of harmony.

I would love as man to recommend or give this book to every woman I know but in reality this book will probably not resonate with many women. This is for a highly evolved person who is seeking a stronger inner life. This could be an intimidating book for a lot of people. Williamson calls women to be Priestesses and talks about feminine spiritual power. She mentions before our patriarchal culture emerged as it is today, women were revered for their spiritual power even by men. What I find so important after reading this book is the healing power between the sexes. It seems today that many men and women are getting bitter towards the opposite sex perhaps because many have been hurt in the dating/romance game as it is or have had bad experiences with parent or so called role models of the opposite sex in childhood. The anonymity of the internet has opened the door for hateful forums and websites from so called Mens Rights Activists bashing women. There are even a few "radical feminist" websites with some hateful comments towards men. If all men could read this book, they will see how it is extremely difficult to be a woman in our society when you are fed messages that you are not worthy. In fact unmarried women as Williamson points out are deemed "spinsters" or "old maids" while unmarried men are known just as bachelors. Look at the double standard that terminology. I think that if many men who have given up dating or are bitter at women read this book, they will become more compassionate toward the plight of women in our culture. What an extraordinary book about having the courage to go within to our deepest souls and be honest with ourselves, and ultimately make the world a more loving place for all.
This book may at first be hard to digest but as you expand your awareness to a Universal level then the meanings all begin to make sense. Detractors may view this book as anti-men, but this is not the case when you read the book and understand it. On the contrary, she does speak of a balance between both masculine and feminine and a balance between the contributions of men and women within societies that flourished. Read pages 15 to 16 fully and digest the words before you make your own assessment of her meaning. Her book is not anti-men but rather anti-male domination which also means anti-imbalance.
