Gillian Anderson’s We: A Manifesto For Women Everywhere

By March 10, 2017Authors, New Releases

We: A Manifesto is a piece of work by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel. The two friends have worked together on this project in hopes to give women a push towards freeing themselves from, well, themselves.

This new release begins:

“Imagine a sisterhood – across all creeds and cultures. An unspoken agreement that we, as women, will support and encourage one another. That we will remember we don’t know what struggles each of us may be facing elsewhere in our lives and so we will assume that each of us is doing our best…”

It promotes itself as “inspiring, empowering, provocative”, and attempts to be more than just a self-help book. It discusses spirituality, politics, meaning and purpose in life, with practical and psychological tools to use daily.

For those of us who are more than a little cynical when it comes to self-help books in general, it is said to be rather more straight-talking than most. I for one look forward to being challenged!

I’m a huge fan of Jojo Moyes, and her books span a range of diverse subjects but it was Me Before You that broke the hearts of a million readers, and (without spoiling the story), it didn’t seem there was anywhere to go from the end. Read More
