Overview

When we give women the same respect and opportunities as men, we give the world its best chance for peace, prosperity, and survival.


• Angry about sexism and misogyny and what you personally have endured?

• Sad for those who suffer because of inequality and greed?

• Afraid the world won't get its act together in time to save itself?

• Care about human rights and want to be part of the solution?

Call Me A Woman begins with a personal story of Levin's early years. She describes how the loss of her mother and multiple sexual assaults, including rape, led to her life's calling.

Inside you'll discover:

• The most important thing parents can do to change the world

• Our unconscious habits that perpetuate inequality

• Inspiring stories to shift resentment to empathy, hope, and action

• The 7 Habits of Equality to speed our way to gender equality and peace

• Inner peace and freedom as you become the solution
