Saving the World with a Bunch of Other Women

I have been reminded in the past few days about the immense joy of working with open-hearted and passionate women. At the Gather the Women Southern California Regional Congress yesterday ... on conference calls co-creating November's Constellations of Hope collaborative conversation (http://www.constellationsofhope.com/) ... and in many other wonderful synergies large and small. This is why I am so optomistic and excited about what women have to contribute to our world at this time of rapid change and increasingly complex global problems.

Women all over the planet are already busy saving the world and I would like to invite many of you to tell your stories in a new book I am nurturing entitled Saving the World with a Bunch of Other Women. (Published in 2009)

It is a story that needs to be told...

...the story of how the women show up to help birth the children, feed the hungry, tend the sick, hospice the dying, nurture community and educate the children all over the world.

...a glimpse at how the global economy relies upon vast amounts of unpaid work being done by women all around the world.

...the good news about the creativity, resourcefullness and stamina of women in every region of the globe.

...how one woman become connected in service with another woman from the other end of the world or from the other side of the village.

Proceeds from sale of the book will be contributed back to the women and organizations featured in the publication.

Do you have a story to tell about your work in the world? Do you know a woman whose story must be told?

I would be honored to hear about it at katheschaaf@cox.net.
