It’s Women’s History Month and women are making history. The “Me Too” movement, the “Times Up” Movement, and in 2017 the largest protest in US history took place, the historical outcry supporting women’s rights, The Women’s March. In celebration, TALKish, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show talks to the author of A GIRLS GUIDE TO JOINING THE RESISTANCE Emma Gray, HuffPost Senior Women’s Reporter and to acclaimed psychotherapist Susie Herrick, author of YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER.
So, the presidential election of 2016 happened. You’re one of those who cried, you ranted, you marched. Your Facebook’s Number One resistor. On Twitter the opposition bots have singled you out. And now, a little more than a year after that horrible man with the orange comb-over took possession of the Oval Office, with a little help from his comrades, you are, in a word, exhausted. How do you keep fighting the good fight? How do you fight and maintain a life? How do you get involved when maybe you’re too far from the action? How do you contain your abject anger? In celebration of Women’s History Month, for her new book A GIRL’S GUIDE TO JOINING THE RESISTANCE: A FEMINIST HANDBOOK ON FIGHTING FOR GOOD, Gray interviewed some of the most prominent thought leaders and activists of our time—including Women’s March Co-Chair Carmen Perez, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Black Lives Matter Network co-creator Alicia Garza, Marlo Thomas—to find out the best ways to listen, join in, and create sustainable action, providing a comprehensive guide for women everywhere, young and old, new feminists and seasoned protesters alike.
Whether we realize it or not, we define ourselves through stories. Understanding your own story is the key to understanding yourself, your world, and your capacity to act within that world. And in the heart of your story, you will find you—your voice, your power, and your truth. In YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER: Free Your Feminine Voice acclaimed psychotherapist Susie Herrick shows readers how to discover their own story, use it to cultivate their own power, and move forward both as an individual and as part of a strong female community seeking positive change. In celebration of Women’s History Month, YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER confronts the cultural narrative that a woman’s worth can be measured by her beauty and submissiveness, while also calling attention to how girls and women often feel held back by feelings of what they “should” do, be, or say. At a juncture where we need women’s voices, women’s intelligence, women’s compassion, and women’s courage to help us navigate the difficult issues that face humankind and the planet we call home, Herrick, with humor, measured outrage, proven psychology, and hope for the future, empowers women to seek out deep psychological truths in YOUR STORY IS YOUR POWER.
