Goddess Shift:
Women Leading for a Change


Cover Art / Press Room / Interview Questions

“The essays in this brilliant collection range from inspirational to sentimental, from rather reserved, deeply personal to visionary and daring. Reading through them my mood shifted from moved to amused, from astonished and bewildered to admiring and feeling really empowered. I’ve met a lot of old “friends” – women who made me rethink what was possible for a female to achieve back when I was growing up, women whom I’ve admired and respected for decades now. Through reading Goddess Shift edited by Stephanie Marohn, I’ve met a number of voices new to me, who made me decide to look deeper into what the ladies whom those voices belong to are doing to change the world.”

“Goddess Shift is an inspiring, surprising, and often illuminating collection of essays by women leaders who are creating change in all walks of life. With a lengthy roster of contributors that includes both well-known women’s voices—Michelle Obama, Suze Orman, Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and Eve Ensler, just to name a few—and some lesser-known leaders, the book brings together an impressive series of prose pieces that are as personal as they are topical. Never preachy and always poignant, Goddess Shift captures how women’s worldviews—their capacities for love and compassion—are transforming the world’s most broken systems.”

“A stunning anthology of nonfiction articles, meditations, essays and reflections by many of the most recognizable and influential women of our time are brought together in this volume; women who are leaders in every facet of life and diverse fields of endeavor share with all women in the hopes of empowering us to reach our own individual heights of success and fulfillment. This is an anthology to treasure, to share with all the women you know and love, and to refer to again and again for encouragement, motivation and growth. A thoughtful and wonderful book to pass on to our girl children and grandchildren, this reader/reviewer will keep her copy and refer to it regularly.”

“For millennia, woman have been without a strong leadership voice in human affairs. No more! Women are now in positions of power in every branch of government, business, and social organization. They are providing a new style of collaborative and visionary leadership, which is changing the way society functions. Goddess Shift is an anthology that celebrates these values. It describes the shape of the new human family that is emerging from the leadership of these remarkable women, and the very different future they envision for the world we share.”

“What material success does is provide you with the ability to concentrate on other things that really matter. And that is being able to make a difference, not only in your own life, but in other people’s lives.”
