In four parts, each divided into Awakening and Solutions chapters, the author presents a multifaceted view of all aspects of womens lives -- from their personal relationships with men, home, and family, to their position in the workplace, to their connection with the earth and their part in healing the current ecological crisis. Not only does Now Its Our Turn articulate the gender imbalance in society, it also challenges the reader with ideas, techniques, and solutions for how women can acquire personal power along with social and political authority.The Awakening section of each part contains chapters describing the research that explains and validates womens problems, while the Solutions section provides chapters offering internal as well as external answers and alternatives. The internal soluctions include exercises for developing a psychological and spiritual mastery that strengthens a womans psyche. The external solutions offer specific actions and shifts in attitude as well as acts of power a woman can initiate to transform her home, her career, and the world. Grounded in sociological, psychological, and statistical research, this book offers spiritual and practical solutions that women can put to use in their lives. Resources, notes, and an index are included.
