Women Learning from Women
Here comes advice, inspiration, and fun from bestselling author BJ Gallagher. From Katherine Hepburn to her friend Suzanne, Where Would I Be Without You? brings the experiences and life lessons of women from all walks of life.
When women choose wisdom over wiles. True wisdom is the ability to learn from other people's experiences, and although we learn from books, movies, and preachers, women also learn from other women. With inspiring stories, funny words of wisdom, and positive affirmations for women, Where Would I Be Without You? brings female empowerment to all generations of strong women.
Where would we be without women? Where Would I Be Without You? is all about being thankful for the women in your life (and their wit). Whether our mothers or sisters, writers or inventors, sometimes we have to celebrate the women and girls around us. In this colorful book, Gallagher has collected pages of advice on love, work, growing older, and staying young; making readers ask what is wisdom, what does wisdom mean to these women, and most importantly, where would I be without you?
If you’re thankful and grateful for the women around you, and enjoyed books like Badass Affirmations, In Praise of Difficult Women, or The Shared Wisdom of Mothers and Daughters, then you’ll love Where Would I Be Without You.

Women May Be Our Last Hope to Save the Planet
Wake up! Arise! Earth is our home. Listen to your mother, she is calling. Urgent Message from Mother is a call to action for all the women of the world. Do not ask for permission to gather the women. What cannot be done by men, or by individual women, can be done by women together.
Women coming together can produce the tipping point. "Mother" is Mother Earth, mother instinct, mother archetype, mother goddess, Earth Mother ─ the sacred feminine, the Goddess, Gaia. Women as a gender have qualities and priorities that the world needs to reverse man’s destruction of our planet, the violence that traumatizes children, and cycles of conflict and fratricidal wars. "When women are strong together, women can be fiercely protective of what we love." Bolen explains that societies and even species, when they reach a tipping point, can undergo rapid evolution. "We've learned that women gathering together in groups and telling the truth of their lives can actually change the world."
Now is the time for women to lead. Jean Shinoda Bolen’s unique combination of visionary thinking and practical how-to seeks to galvanize the power of women acting together in order to save our world. Bolen outlines the lessons we can learn from the women's movement, draws on Jungian psychology and the sacred feminine, and gives powerful examples of women coming together all over the globe to make a significant impact. Jean Shinoda Bolen's life's work, which includes her Jungian-inspired insights in The Tao of Psychology, her best-seller Goddesses in Every Woman, Crones Don't Whine, and The Millionth Circle, culminate in this timely book, Urgent Message from Mother.
