Julie de Azevedo Hanks draws on her experience as a psychotherapist, as well as extensive research, to show us how to cut through our gender socialization and move past behavioral and relational patterns to find and express our own voices. But at the same time that she provides us with tools for self-empowerment, she shows how we can do this without disempowering others. This is one of many things that makes this book special.
