Women are ushering in a more humane world based on collaboration
and partnership, not exploitation or domination. Women are easing
poverty, conflicts, and human rights abuses in a way the world has
not yet seen. But to rise up and answer the calls of the world,
women themselves also need to answer the call to evolve, come
together, and help one another succeed, not hold one another back.
Girl/Woman Advocate Susan Skog’s landmark book beautifully helps
us answer this next call and become the empowered lights and
leaders so needed in the world at this time.

As the Dalai Lama says, love is simple, but not easy. Susan’s intention for this
book is to make loving easier. That is a great calling, and she does it beautifully
through story, research, and meditation practices that will open your heart and
remind you of all that you already know, but that is so easily forgotten in our
complex, fast-paced world.
