How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive
The feminist guide for women to understand, appreciate and speak up for themselves.
A follow up from the bestselling Self-Compassion, this bookshows why it is more urgent than ever that women acknowledge their areas of suffering, celebrate their inner voice and challenge the male-orientated status quo.
The book will draw on Kristin Neff's own life story as well as the stories of other women to show how readers can harness self-compassion and gain the strength, clarity and courage needed to be resilient and stand up for themselves in our male-dominated society.
She'll explore core issues such as gender differences, why women aren't more compassionate to themselves, and what women do for love. With expert research, concrete tools and easy-to-follow mindfulness practices, this book will empower women to let go of self-criticism, draw boundaries and become fierce.
