politics, science, sports, industry or anything else you could think of. While I've often heard young women complain that they do not have any real female roles models, I've tended to disagree with that and it really pleased me when I discovered "Goddess Shift," an anthology devoted to strong, wise and powerful women of today, represented by forty-three fascinating and extremely diverse ladies who are shaping and changing the world we live in.
The essays in this brilliant collection range from inspirational to sentimental, from rather reserved, deeply personal to visionary and daring. Reading through them my mood shifted from moved to amused, from astonished and bewildered to admiring and feeling really empowered. I've met a lot of old "friends" - women who made me rethink what was possible for a female to achieve back when I was growing up, women whom I've admired and respected for decades now. Through reading "Goddess Shift" edited by Stephanie Marohn, I've met a number of voices new to me, who made me decide to look deeper into what the ladies whom those voices belong to are doing to change the world.
