Are you a doer or a complainer?

Secrets of Powerful Women is a call-to-action for its readers to get involved; particularly the women who feel like the world of politics does not benefit them. A number of these politically active women who were interviewed were overwhelmingly raised with a sense of social awareness of a leader's impact from a young age. The awareness was generally instilled by their mother, grandmother, etc. or another female role model who simply went against the gender norms of her day with a bold foray into leadership.

These women were taught that to get something changed for the better it is necessary to DO something about it and not just complain to others. They all emphasize that it's important to encourage and invite other women to get involved in leadership within a community, school group, political campaign, or whatever sparks their passion. The best part about this collection of essays is that they all answer the same set of questions so it gives you that man– er, woman on the street feel. Check it out.
