"Susan's book gives a great perspective on how things have changed over time for women."Alice Krause of News on Women (newsonwomen.com)

About the Author

Susan Bulkeley Butler has been proving that women count ever since she became the first female professional at Arthur Andersen & Co. in 1965 and later the first female partner of what would become Accenture, the global management consulting company. Now, as a philanthropist, mentor, speaker, executive coach and CEO of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Institute for the Development of Women Leaders (www.sbbinstitute.org), she is fulfilling her lifelong passion of making an impact on women and girls of all ages and helping ensure they too become women who count. Her first book, Become the CEO of You, Inc., was published in 2006.Bob Keefe has been a writer, editor and journalist for more than 20 years, most recently as the Washington correspondent for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper. He and his wife currently live outside of Washington, where they're watching their three daughters grow into women who count.

"Woman Count" has widened my view of my own future at the age of 40, as well as how I see the future for my children. I have given this book as gifts to friends young and old - and it has prompted great discussion.

I have to say that I loved this book! While a compact book, there is so much information contained in these pages that made me realize how fortunate I am for women in history that have shaped the world as I know it today. This book also made me take a look at my own life and wondering how I am contributing to the world for future generations. What could I do in my life that might make a change that in 20+ years will be noted by others?

I enjoyed reading little bits about various historical women that paved the way for me and more than just those in the Women's Suffrage movement. Did you know the cotton gin idea was created by a woman, Catherine Littlefield Greene? Knowing that she would never receive a patent for it that she shared that information with Eli Whitney who did patent the machine. This is just one example that Susan notes in her book.

I'd say that this book could be read by anyone of any age. There are some parts that might impact a woman that is older (18+) but there are many parts that younger women could take and work into their lives.

Many people - mistakenly or optimistically - think we are in a post-feminist world. They argue that the feminist movement of the 1960s and 70s made its impact and there is nothing more to do for women. That is no more true than to say that Barack Obama's election marks the end of racism in the US. We have made great progress but we are not yet an equal society. Susan B. Butler reminds us how far women have come in seeking equality and how far we have yet to go. She tells us inspirational stories of women who were pioneers in their field, including Ms. Butler herself who was the first female professional at Arthur Andersen & Co. More than that, she challenges us to dream big and to go beyond what others before us have done. Women comprise over half the population of the US and more than 60% of our college graduates. If companies exclude women from leadership or if women "opt out" of the work world because they cannot find a job that allows them to fulfill their commitments to their families in the way that they need to, we have lost a tremendous amount of talent. This book is a call to action for CEOs who, consciously or unconsciously, have created corporate cultures in which women do not thrive. It is also a call to action for women of all ages who may have focused too much on the obstacles and not enough on their dreams. Ms. Butler speaks with authority as a woman with decades of executive experience, including years as the Chief of Staff of the CEO of Accenture, a $21 billion technology and outsourcing consulting company with over 200,000 employees.

Feminism isn't dead because its work is not yet done. Susan Butler is the new voice of feminism in the 21st century and she is a voice worth listening to.
