Why have women not achieved equality in socio-economics, educational opportunities, voting, and health? Why do men still outnumber women in positions of power? How can we change these perceptions and realities forever and create a new world for future generations?In Part I, Dr. Carballo-Perelman examines the history of women’s “unempowerment” through a series of essays that cover such hot topics as equality of the sexes- the progress seen by women in underdeveloped nations as well as those in medicine and in corporations- how world religions have affected the treatment of women- and the reasons men still dominate today’s world. In Part II, Carballo-Perelman relates the “original fairy tale nightmare”—an allegory for the status of women, both historically and through the ages to the present day, delineating the story’s similarities to today’s headline news.She retells classic fairy tales from the point of view of an empowered woman in Part III, following up with real-life examples of the fairy tales’ heroines. Each heroine embodies one of Carballo-Perelman’s “eleven attributes of empowered women”: confidence, teamwork, respect, compassion, humility, calmness, acknowledgement of others, honesty, courage, success, and enjoyment. Then, in Part IV, the author shares her version of the ideal future, told as a modern fairy tale.Are you ready to shatter the glass ceiling that has been holding you back and change your own internal perceptions? Empowerment comes from within. Dr. Carballo-Perelman will give you the practical tips, encouragement, and motivation to move upward as an empowered woman.
