Description - Iron Butterflies by Birute Regine

This is a compelling argument for recognising the unique place women have in being able to shape the future of the world. A profound transition is taking place in our society, a revolution that is largely hidden, and led predominantly by women. A society once based on domination and power over others is beginning to crumble as an era of cooperation and community emerges, founded on the principle that power should only be exercised with and for others. This is the central message of "Iron Butterflies", which weaves together the stories of 60 successful women from all walks of life and throughout the world - from CEOs and ex-Presidents to Pulitzer Prize-winning novelists and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, and from winemakers and artists to doctors and nurses. Critiquing the command-and-control style of leadership derived from the gladiator concept of male invulnerability, this volume convincingly demonstrates how traditional feminine skills and values - such as inclusion, empathy, a holistic perspective, relationship skills, and emotional strength - can be applied to empower more people than ever before.
