Feminist icon Gloria Feldt pulls no punches in her new book, which encourages women to step into positions of power and leadershipnow. In No Excuses, she argues that the most confounding problem facing women today isn’t that doors aren’t open, but that not enough women are walking through them.

Through interviews, historical perspective, and anecdotes, No Excuses examines why barriers to equality still exist in American society. Feldt employs a no-nonsense, tough-love point of view to expose the internal and external roadblocks holding women back, but she doesn’t place blame; rather, she provides inspiration, hope, and courageas well as concrete power tools”the 9 ways, with one highlighted in each chapterto aid women in securing equality and justice for themselves.
No Excuses is a timely and invaluable book that intends to help women equalize gender power in politics, work, and love.
