Description - The Awakened Woman by Dr Tererai Trent
Winner of a 2017 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work, this moving manifesto "empowers women to access a fearlessness that will enable community progress" (Essence). Through one incredible woman's journey from a small Zimbabwe village to becoming one of the world's most recognizable voices in women's empowerment and education, this book "can help any woman achieve her full potential" (Kirkus Reviews).
Before Tererai Trent landed on Oprah's stage as her "favorite guest of all time," she was a woman with a forgotten dream. As a young girl in a cattle-herding village in Zimbabwe, she dreamed of receiving an education but instead was married young and by eighteen, without a high school graduation, she was already a mother of three. Tererai encountered a visiting American woman who assured her that anything was possible, reawakening her sacred dream.
Tererai planted her dreams deep in the earth and prayed they would grow. They did, and now not only has she earned her PhD but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe, with funding from Oprah. The Awakened Woman: A Guide for Remembering & Igniting Your Sacred Dreams is her accessible, intimate, and evocative guide that teaches nine essential lessons to encourage all women to reexamine their dreams and uncover the power hidden within them-power that can recreate our world for the better.
Tererai points out that there is a massive, untapped, global resource in women who have, for one reason or another, set aside their wisdom, their skills, and their dreams in order to take care of the personal business of their lives. Not only is this a type of invisible suffering experienced by countless women, this rich resource is a secret weapon for improving our world. Women have the capacity to inspire, to create, to transform-and Tererai's call to action "shines as a beacon of hope to women everywhere" (Danica McKellar, actress and New York Times bestselling author).
