About The Feminine Revolution:

The Feminine Revolution offers 21 ways to ignite your feminine power for a brighter life and better world. Its authors, Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors, challenge outdated perceptions that feminine traits are weaknesses, redefining those characteristics as assets that should be championed. With an upbeat blend of self-help and fresh analysis, The Feminine Revolution reboots femininity for the modern woman and provides her with the tools to accept and embrace her own authentic nature.

Do you associate feminine qualities with weakness and masculine qualities with strength, even subconsciously? Do you see that as a problem? Have you ever found yourself acting a certain way because that’s how you think you’re supposed to act?

Our hope is that after listening to this episode with this week’s guest Amy Stanton, you’ll reflect on some of your own masculine and feminine qualities and think about how those traits can better serve you in reaching your goals.

Maybe it’s a simple as changing the way you think about those traits. Perhaps, if you recognize how you use those qualities, you can actually choose to tap into them differently in certain situations. And MAYBE, just maybe, you have more tools in your toolbox than you ever knew!

“A lot of people were feeling this way, specifically in the work-place, feeling like we have to operate like men in order to thrive in the man’s world, which may be at the expense of being more feminine. And feminine had taken on this very negative spin.” - Amy Stanton

“All of these things that have been seen as negative when describing women and femininity, these are actually our superpowers.” - Amy Stanton
