Influence: How Women’s Soaring Economic Power will Transform Our World for the Better was just released on Tuesday, May 4th, 2010 (Voice/Hyperion). This book was written by my friend, Maddy Dychtwald. It’s been getting great early buzz from people including Nobel Peace Prize Winner Jody Williams and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA). In its review, Publisher’s Weekly called Influence a “riveting exploration of female economic emancipation in the 21st century” and the Huffington Post began hosting a front–page series last week. This week’s blog is called “Who is the World’s Most Influential Woman?” (Answer: Mom). Recently, US News & World Report recommended Maddy’s personal blog stating it “tracks women’s progress and influence as women gain power and wealth in society and culture.” Interest is building. As you know, the conversation about harnessing women’s economic and leadership influence must be had in all places…by women and men. It’s an important movement.
