    Motivating for all!

    Susan Butler has written an encouraging and inspiring book that is a must read for all women. In Women Count, she shares stories about women from history, who have struggled for equality. For example, Phillis Wheatley, Louisa May Alcott, Dolores Huerta, Wilma Rudolph and Barbara Jordan are some of the many women out there making a difference. She encourages women in the present to join together and dream big as we work our way closer to true equality and gender diversity. Without a doubt, Susan Butler is paving a way for women into the future. It's time for all of us to walk on that path and by doing so, make the world a better place for all women and men.
