Description
Urgent and provocative, We: A Manifesto for Women Everwhere is "part self-help, part social theory, centered in the idea that instead of having it 'all,' women can live happier, better lives by becoming more free" (Glamour), from longtime friends Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel.
We: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere is an uplifting, timely, and practical manual for creating change in women's lives, with nine universal principles that help you confront life's inevitable emotional and spiritual challenges. It's about transitioning from a me-first culture and imagining what a we-based world might look like.

In We, Anderson and Nadel ask why so many women are locked in cycles of depression, addiction, self-criticism, and even self-harm. How much more effective and powerful would we all be if we replaced our current patterns of competition, criticism, and comparison with collaboration, cooperation, and compassion?

Putting these values at the center of our lives allows each of us to be happier and more empowered, and to replace harmful habits with a more positive, peaceful, and rewarding way of being. We is a rallying cry for "every woman, everywhere on the planet. Open to any page. And there you will find a truth that can set you free" (Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom).

        January 23, 2017
        Actor Anderson and journalist Nadel’s feminist manifesto is written as a practical guide for women, using many personal insights and struggles as the beginning point for what they hope will be a miraculous journey of individual and collective healing. The book is divided into two main sections, the first highlighting four “essential practices,” or mental adjustments (such as gratitude) that are integral to the success of the implementation of the subsequent nine principles that compose the other main section. These principles take the form of abstractions such as peace, joy, and love, but the book takes these notions out of the realm of the abstract and makes the reader work for them. Each principle chapter includes quotes, anecdotes, and exercises that require real effort; these lend the book more heft and spare it from being just another recitation of self-help platitudes.

        A series of practical steps for women to self-improve and help each other.In this collaboration, actress Anderson (co-author: The Sound of Seas: The EarthEnd Saga #3, 2016, etc.) and journalist Nadel (Pretty Thing, 2015, etc.) combine elements of self-help techniques, behavior therapy, meditation, and friendly conversations with a best friend or therapist. "WE is a journey based on a set of nine principles that have been taught by sages and saints throughout the ages and which have the power to transform your life and the world around you," write the authors. "It isn't a lifestyle choice to be bolted onto ego-driven living; it's a path of radical transformation that puts compassion for the world at its core." The authors claim that by following the numerous exercises included under each guiding principle--honesty, acceptance, courage, trust, humility, peace, love, joy, and kindness--women will notice a shift in their attitudes toward others and how others treat them. The assignments, which can be accomplished in small increments, require the use of a journal or notebook. Since they build on one another, readers should start at the beginning rather than jump to a particular principle. Personal comments by both authors help readers understand how the nine beliefs have affected their lives, and they include a useful summary of each of the values as well as relevant affirmations from a variety of historical figures, including Helen Keller, Anne Frank, and Rosa Parks. Though the authors don't provide much new or groundbreaking information, the way they have grouped it together, distilled the essence of each practice, and provided a road map of tasks will enable readers to actually set a plan in motion. "You have nothing to lose but your unhappiness," they write, "and the world has everything to gain." Sunny, easy-to-follow self-help principles.

        Award-winning actor/producer Anderson and award-winning journalist Nadel present something a little different: not a memoir of what they've learned from their friendship but a manifesto emerging from that lifelong experience and arguing that women need to support one another instead of competing for the top prize in the I-can-do-it-all superwoman contest. Originally scheduled for March 2016.
