9781843332510: Power and Sex: A Book About Women

Can power be wielded with integrity and responsibility? How do we oppose domination and power without using force or escalating conflict? Author and former UNESCO consultant Scilla Elworthy, Ph.D., takes on these timely and important issues in her groundbreaking book. Dr. Elworthy calls upon men and women to replace their distorted notions of "male" power and domination with a new, inner power, developed through the body, mind, and spirit. This power, she asserts, is available equally to men and women; it is rooted in the power of union, balancing the male and female elements in everyone. This union also offers men and women a more natural and fearless approach to sex and sensuality. In Power and Sex, we see how in both personal and public life, the inner fusion of masculine and feminine energies are the answer to the kind of power the world needs today. Readers can use this book to bring power into their lives without taking it away from others. With it, you can transform yourself and your world.
