Wake Up, American Women: Five Myths That Threaten Our Health and Sanity


Wake Up, American Women: Five Myths That Threaten Our Health and Sanity Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Studies show that seven out of ten women, ages fifteen to sixty, avoid meeting friends, exercising, voicing an opinion, attending school, going to work, dating, or seeking medical attention because they don't like the way they look. This waste of time and talent is becoming increasingly detrimental to our own health and welfare and to the welfare of our daughters, granddaughters, and other women around the world.

In Wake Up, American Women, author Andrea Riggs shows how women are conditioned and tethered to old beliefs that tell them their personal value is based on appearance. She explores five myths threatening women's health and sanity that revolve around body image, desirability, the curse of aging, power, and competition. She provides practical solutions and tools for dealing with problems to help women transform their lives.

Riggs invites us to examine what we are unconsciously allowing to happen to women in this country, and she demonstrates that we must step into a new paradigm and shift our perspective. Wake Up, American Women communicates that we must dream big dreams and make a commitment to ourselves, our health, and our freedom.
