There is a growing market for books about the power and values of women, represented by current books like The Athena Doctrine, Lean In, End of Men, Vital Voices, and the documentary film (by Emmanuel Itier), Femme: Women Healing the World. RenWomen distinguishes itself as both aspirational and inspirational. It presents pragmatic lessons on how, as women, to achieve at one’s highest level, while also showing the deeper values at the heart of such achievement. In our constantly shifting, global, and confounding 21st century world, “RenWomen” hold key insights into how to live an expansive life of joy, passion and living up to one’s fullest potential.
