As a young girl in Zimbabwe, Tererai Trent yearned to receive an education. Instead, by eighteen she had already become a mother of four, her high school graduation only an elusive fantasy. Then, an inspiring encounter reawakened her sacred dream. Now, not only has Tererai earned her PhD but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe with funding from Oprah. In The Awakened Woman, she shares motivational lessens for all women to reexamine their ambitions and uncover their power. There is a massive; largely untapped global resource in women who have, for one reason or another, set aside much of their wisdom, their skids, and their aspirations in order to take care of the personal and professional business of their lives. Women have the capacity to inspire, to create, to transform-and Tererai's moving call to action will awaken hearts, grant permission to recapture dreams, and provide the toots to forge a brighter path for all. This is the movement of the Awakened Woman. Book jacket.
