The Self Empowered Woman : 17 Characteristics of High Achievers

The Self-Empowered WomanThe Self-Empowered Woman explores and examines the elements that contribute to the making of a high-achieving woman’s life. For each of the 17 chapters there are mini-biographies of four women who exemplify the trait under discussion, and one of the four has been personally interviewed by the author. Information on the other three has been gathered from biographies, autobiographies and secondary-source research material. Each chapter ends with five exercises designed to help the reader learn how to incorporate the trait into her own life. Following that is a list of ten additional women whose lives have also incorporated that chapter’s specific trait. The accomplished women profiled in the book – from astronauts to actresses – come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds (Black, Anglo, Asian, and Hispanic), talents, nationalities, and levels of achievement.

Share it with the young women in your life. It will inspire them and prove yet again that it’s determination more than anything else that makes all the difference. You’ll never look at these women or their accomplishments in the same way again.”
