Imagine a sisterhood – across all creeds and cultures. An unspoken agreement that we, as women, will support and encourage one another. That we will remember we don't know what struggles each of us may be facing elsewhere in our lives and so we will assume that each of us is doing our best…
So begins WE: an inspiring, empowering and provocative manifesto for change. Change which we can all effect, one woman at a time. Change which provides a crucial and timely antidote to the 'have-it-all' Superwoman culture and instead focusses on what will make each and every one of us happier and more free. Change which provides an answer to the nagging sense of 'is that it?' that almost all of us can succumb to when we wake in the dead of night.
Written by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel – two friends who for the last decade have stumbled along together, learning, failing, crying, laughing and trying again – WE is a not a theoretical treatise but instead a rallying cry to create a life that has greater meaning and purpose. Combining tools which are practical, psychological and spiritual, it is both a process and a vision for a more fulfilling way of living. And a truly inspiring vision of a happier, more emotionally rewarding future we can all create together…

We a Manifesto for Women Everywhere
Wow! Where do I start?? This book is life changing, empowering and just brilliant. I feel I have grown immensely whilst reading it. Working on the exercises helps you drs over new meanings. It has made me a better version of myself, helping me deal with anxiety and difficult moments. Every woman needs to read this book! Brilliantly brilliant thank you Gillian and Jennifer 😊
Yes, it is certainly fair to say I probably wouldn't have bought this book if it hadn't been written by Gillian Anderson, but that's not to say it doesn't apply to me because I think on some level it applies to all of us. I've not read it all but the combination of both writers works well and having heard them speak about it I wanted to know more. There are things I agree with and things I'm sceptical of but as it says 'what do you have to lose'. Well, the answer to that is a very clear nothing which probably tells me-I should take some advice. From who better than someone I admire and someone else I've come to respect very recently.
