This book is written with courage and bracing honesty. The author, before she does anything else, shares her own story of pain and confusion, thereby making it clear that she writes from a well of understanding. This is not some abstract checklist of what it takes to be a whole woman; rather, it is a heartfelt guide composed by a woman who has suffered through and survived the very challenges she wants to help other women overcome. Every woman should give this book to at least one other woman, and certainly every mother to her daughter. And it must be pointed out: no man will be the poorer for reading this for a better understanding of how very different a woman's struggles and needs are from his own. This book says, "Woman, heal thyself." The author makes it clear that this must happen first, before a woman can heal others, and that this can only happen by embracing God's healing love. The author's tone is conversational, sometimes even humorous in the midst of calamity. Clearly-recalled details draw the reader into her experiences, teaching through example, and the message of God's omnipresence and faithfulness is brought home repeatedly. There is universally sound advice here for struggling men, as well: ..".you are not the mistakes you make." Xulon Press Every woman should have a mentor or friend they can look to for advice during both the challenging and joyful times in life. Cheryle T. Ricks is that friend and through her conversational style of writing, you feel as if she's right next to you as you read. Her transparency lends authenticity to her life story and credibility to her wise words. You'll walk away from this book feeling as if you've made a new friend. Erika Bennett, Xulon Press Editor

WINNER OF THE 2011 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE In a time of death and terror, Leymah Gbowee brought Liberia’s women together—and together they led a nation to peace. As a young woman, Leymah Gbowee was broken by the Liberian civil war, a brutal conflict that tore apart her life and claimed the lives of countless relatives and friends. Years of fighting destroyed her country—and shattered Gbowee’s girlhood hopes and dreams. As a young mother trapped in a nightmare of domestic abuse, she found the courage to turn her bitterness into action, propelled by her realization that it is women who suffer most during conflicts—and that the power of women working together can create an unstoppable force. In 2003, the passionate and charismatic Gbowee helped organize and then led the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women who sat in public protest, confronting Liberia’s ruthless president and rebel warlords, and even held a sex strike. With an army of women, Gbowee helped lead her nation to peace—in the process emerging as an international leader who changed history. Mighty Be Our Powers is the gripping chronicle of a journey from hopelessness to empowerment that will touch all who dream of a better world.

There is a developing recognition that sexism, racism, and class all figure significantly in the subjugation of women across societies and across ethnic groups. For feminism to be a viable agent for change in Africa, false distinctions of gender, race and class must be understood and overcome, and women must be incorporated within the movement at the grassroots. The strength of this volume of collected essays is in the candor and rigor with which these important questions are addressed. The essays confront conflict between indigenous Africa n feminism and the radicalism of western variants with their emphasis on sexuality and seeming opposition to motherhood. They collectively argue that the African environment specifically should provide the context for any meaningful analysis of feminisms on that continent. The collection spans Africa and the diaspora -- from women organizing for social change in South Africa, to fighting colonialism in Nigeria, researching women's issues in Uganda, and building sisterhood in Memphis, Tennessee (USA). It makes a convincing case for dialogue crossing geographic and ethnic lines, across, and of course within, gender. In aggregate, the book is an important step towards that critical dialogue.

The Glory to Glory Sisterhood breaks down barriers between women, building up their faith in God and their bonds with each other. The Glory to Glory Sisterhood invites Christian women to join God’s “sisterhood sorority” by exploring sensitive-to-women issues including: • Rejection. • Coveting. • Receiving love. • Disappointment. • Insecurity. • Accepting themselves as beautiful. Robin Kirby-Gatto draws on her own experiences of rejection, worthlessness, and rebellion to create bonds of trust and understanding among women of all ages, “to bring women into unity where we see each other through the eyes of Christ.” She begins with her own story, showing the depths God went to redeem and call her to fulfill her destiny and purpose. The Glory to Glory Sisterhood addresses worldly standards that have come against women in general that have built strongholds of competition through jealousy, pride, gossip, and judgment—giving women false expectations about how to treat each other—and empowers them to move forward using God’s standard to propel them into godly, sisterly relationships. Probing questions at the conclusion of each meaningful chapter open your heart to Jesus, the Lover of your soul, and allow you to take a deeper look at your Savior—and yourself.

The women who wielded the real power behind the throne in Renaissance Italy, from a bestselling historian. This book is one of drama on a grand scale, a Renaissance epic, as Christendom emerged from the shadows of the calamitous 14th century. The sweeping tale involves inspired and corrupt monarchs, the finest thinkers, the most brilliant artists and the greatest beauties in Christendom. Here are the stories of its most remarkable women, who are all joined by birth, marriage and friendship and who ruled for a time in place of their men-folk: Lucrezia Turnabuoni (Queen Mother of Florence, the power behind the Medici throne), Clarice Orsini (Roman princess, feudal wife), Beatrice d'Este (Golden Girl of the Renaissance), Caterina Sforza (Lioness of the Romagna), Isabella d'Este (the Acquisitive Marchesa), Giulia Farnese ('la bella', the family asset), Isabella d'Aragona (the Weeping Duchess) and Lucrezia Borgia (the Virtuous Fury). The men play a secondary role in this grand saga; whenever possible the action is seen through the eyes of our heroines. These eight women experienced great riches, power and the warm smile of fortune, but they also knew banishment, poverty, the death of a husband or the loss of one or more of their children. As each of the chosen heroines comes to the fore in her turn, she is handed the baton by her 'sister', and Leonie Frieda recounts the role each woman played in the hundred-year drama that is THE DEADLY SISTERHOOD.
