Women are simply not represented in leadership positions in government or corporate America. Nor are we adequately represented on the airwaves or the Op-Ed pages of our top newspapers. If Women Ruled the World aspires to right the imbalance by giving women a platform to voice their opinions, priorities, hopes, and ideas for change.

The book includes over 200 short experiences, stories, thoughts or meditations written and shared by women around the world. Some will be first person accounts, others in interview or story form. Contributors are women of all ages, racial, economic and social backgrounds. Authors, celebrities, experts and politicians are included as well, creating a book that is a humorous, moving, questioning, take-action, opinionated, warm and informative as it examines the many ideas, solutions and directions women would choose if they had a chance to rule the world.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) and The White House Project. FMF is a cutting edge organization dedicated to women's equality, reproductive health, and non-violence. The White House Project is an influential organization dedicated to advancing women's leadership by fostering the entry of women into positions of leadership, including the U.S. presidency.

From the Author:

I received hundreds of essay submissions for this book from women of every background--with and without kids, old and young, from those who had a humorous experience with the issue they wanted to address, to those whose words screamed of injustice, inequality, and world problems so big that I would set the essay aside and stare at my computer screen, unable to move, unsure if the world was actually ready to hear the truth. What moved me most was how alike we are. Regardless of upbringing, economics, or education, underneath the skin of women is a wild, protective, nurturing strength that knows we're in trouble. We know somehow we have to rise together and take a stand. We may disagree on the direction society needs to move in, but we all agree it needs to get moving. Women's voices fill these pages--women who see a new world rising from the ashes of mistakes, poor choices, and lack of direction. The intent of this book is to engage your mind, heart, and imagination to the point where you feel uniquely called to participate. Change is about movement, and movement in any direction is impossible without an idea—If Women Ruled the World is full of ideas.

From the Inside Flap:

How can we support work and family balance, improve our health-care system, and protect the environment? What could be different in our schools and communities? How can women everywhere stand up for compassion, peace, and equality?

"If Women Ruled the World" shines the spotlight on women’s opinions and ideas and suggests concrete calls-to-action, challenging women to be true participants in leading the world. With poignant personal essays from more than 150 women, this visionary book invites women to take on today’s issues—from the personal to the political0-0and asks that we all rise to the occasion to create a world of grace and humanity.
