About No Excuses

“There’s no excuse…for women today not to own their own power and lead an unlimited life.”


No Excuses: 9 Ways Women can Change How We Think About Power

In 2010, the gender balance in the American workforce tipped toward women. For every man who received a bachelor’s degree, three women did the same. Yet there is still a 20% pay gap between men and women, and women represent only 3% of Fortune 500 CEOs. What’s wrong with this picture?

In No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power (Seal Press), feminist icon Gloria Feldt asserts that nobody is keeping women from parity — except themselves.

Combining extensive research, her personal experience as former CEO and president of the Planned Parenthood Federation, and interviews with dozens of women politicians, business owners, and activists, Feldt concludes that the doors of opportunity are wide open, but too few women are leading the way to claim their power and reach parity with their male counterparts.

Gloria encourages women to embrace power—by defining the terms of their personal and professional interactions and by employing every medium to get their message across.

“Women are socialized, pressured to conform,” Feldt explains. “No Excuses provides 9 practical power tools  that help women to embrace their power in their relationships and at work, in order to lead unlimited lives.

“This is an amazing time to be a woman. In my years as an activist, I have seen many doors open for us and that is so exciting to me. I’ve talked to women from all over the country; and have come to realize that we need to change how we think about power, from an oppressive power over model we were taught to the expansive power to.”

Timely and hard-hitting, No Excuses is an invaluable resource that will help women equalize gender power in politics, work, and love. Order your copy today.
