I was disappointed to see the world's religious traditions so dismissively trashed in this book. I thought that the civilized world learned about religious intolerance in the wake of the horrors of World War II. Perhaps the co-authors may wish to examine the trend of unimaginative journalists bashing organized religion.
I think that recent history boasts of women whose vision and leadership is enriched by the values and ethics of their religious traditions. Dorothy Day is an outstanding example of this trend.
It is an exciting time in history as women are continuing to emerge as compelling leaders in global society. Religious intolerance aside, Megatrends for Women is an interesting look at the remarkable trends shaping our world.
I really enjoyed this book. It made me think about what I am doing with my time, and how I can improve myself and the world around me. I was disappointed with the lack of African American input in the areas of business, politics, and religion. Also, whats going on in the South, from your book, NOTHING!! Women are a powerful force in this country, and the world. I think we should take it back!!!
This book--obviously, from the title--is trying to capitalize on the authors' previous bestseller "Megatrends," which was indeed full of fascinating and insightful information.
But "Megatrends for Women" does not appear to employ the content analysis methodology that made "Megatrends" so right on the money. Instead, this is made up almost entirely of anecdotes and quotes from various activists/advocates. In short, it's not an objective sociological study, it's personal politics.
As a woman who often writes on women's issues, I was hoping this book would provide substantiated evidence of social trends. It doesn't--and, unless you happen to agree with the authors' feminist point of view, it's a bit of a bore.
