About the Book
We talk a lot about how the future is - or should be - female. But wouldn’t a truly female future be a feminine one - that is, one that actually embraces and celebrates all of the complicated, amazing things that characterize us as women? If we’re going claim our female power and light the world with our ideas and our innovations and our leadership, shouldn’t that power — that incredible, infinite, electric power – be feminine?
Feminine traits — such as sensitivity, emotionality, and attention to intuition — were once dismissed or disparaged as weak. We want to reclaim them as powerful strengths that they are.
Challenging old and outdated perceptions that feminine traits and qualities are weaknesses, The Feminine Revolution revisits those characteristics to show how they are powerful assets that should be embraced rather than maligned. With an upbeat blend of self-help and fresh analysis, The Feminine Revolution reboots femininity for the modern woman and gives her the tools to explore the full range of her powers.
Each chapter starts with a story about Amy’s and Catherine’s experiences in confronting a feminine quality or trait traditionally perceived as weak and then digs into the history and contemporary assumptions before reframing the quality or trait in question. They provide tools and ideas for how to implement the practice of integrating the feminine quality in your life, allowing you to tap into your feminine superpowers for a happier, more authentic life.

“I'd love for my daughter to grow up in a world where then men and women in her life support her and in which she won't have to sacrifice her femininity for the expense of her success. The Feminine Revolution is a beautiful exploration of that idea and can help lay the groundwork for that future.”
