WE A Manifesto for Women Everywhere is an uplifting, inspirational, and intensely practical manual for change, providing nine universal principles that offer a path for dealing with life's inevitable emotional and spiritual challenges. It's for anyone who wants to see her own life and the world around her change for the better.
By combining tools that are psychological, political and spiritual, WE takes readers on a life-changing journey. It asks: Why are so many of us--and our daughters--still, in the 21st century, locked in depression and addiction, self-criticism, and even self-harm? How much more effective and powerful would we all be if we replaced our current patterns of competition, criticism, and comparison with collaboration, cooperation, and compassion?
Putting these principles at the center of our lives offers an antidote to our me-first culture and allows each of us to be freer and happier, and to replace unhelpful habits with a more positive, peaceful, and rewarding way of living. WE is a rallying cry for women to join together and create lasting change in our own lives, our communities, and across the world.

Actor Anderson and journalist Nadels feminist manifesto is written as a practical guide for women, using many personal insights and struggles as the beginning point for what they hope will be a miraculous journey of individual and collective healing. The book is divided into two main sections, the first highlighting four essential practices, or mental adjustments (such as gratitude) that are integral to the success of the implementation of the subsequent nine principles that compose the other main section. These principles take the form of abstractions such as peace, joy, and love, but the book takes these notions out of the realm of the abstract and makes the reader work for them. Each principle chapter includes quotes, anecdotes, and exercises that require real effort; these lend the book more heft and spare it from being just another recitation of self-help platitudes. (Mar.)
