Tomorrow is the launch for Nothing but the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection, a book anthology of 51 Women produced by the social network, A Band of Wives.
ABOW was established as a private place for all women (married, single and everything in-between) to connect and flex their voices. It has turned into a multicultural and multigenerational woman-promoting organization with over 4,000 members since its initial launch in 2009. Founder Christine Bronstein, created the network based upon her belief that if every woman felt that their voice mattered, and that they were connected and supported, the world would change dramatically.
My essay entitled “Help a Sister Out!” is included in this edition, covering the topic of global women’s rights and economic development.
Without any political or religious agenda, the book promotes the power of positive connections between women and illustrates how those bonds can transform our world. With research confirming the human need to have meaningful relationships in our lives, it is time to look beyond the abundance of negative stereotypes in the media and shine a light on the powerful, positive aspects of female connection.
Nothing but the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection is the first book in a compelling forthcoming series bringing together essays, poetry, and artwork focused on themes within the self-help and personal improvement genre. This anthology provides insight through essays, poetry, and artwork into the life-changing effects of meaningful connections between women and touches on important topics such as parenting, body image, rape, racism and self-love. It also empowers women by providing a platform for them to share their stories of the complex and vital aspects of female relationships
The authors and artists are women from around the globe, varied racial and ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ages.
I have practically been jumping through hoops of fire in the last several months in attempt to launch “50 Women” for publication, so the bestseller success of this title is certainly a great energetic boost to my efforts! In this book I discuss the conception of “50 Women” and important situations concerning certain women I have met in the process of developing the book project over the past few years. The publishing process has had its challenges, but I have always been one to turn storms into sunshine. I am ready for the future of this project I have dedicated the past 3.5 years of my life to and nothing could usher in the “second era” of its existence better than the launch of this powerful masterpiece.
The anthology is endorsed by Eve Ensler, Peter Coyote, Rita Henley Jensen, Michael Krasny and Tiffany Shalin.
A shout out to all my fellow contributors who are women working towards a better world in all their unique ways everyday! A big, loud, unapologetic ROAR!
