"When did we as women start trying so desperately to tame our feelings, our bodies, our ambition? In this powerful and beautiful book, Elizabeth Lesser brings us back to the earliest stories that convinced us to silence our voices, and then forward to a place where we trust ourselves to lead our lives--and the world."--Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed and founder of Together Rising
"Cassandra Speaks is about the power of love instead of the love of power. Elizabeth Lesser speaks to the value of finding your voice in the wilderness of these times and, of taking a new kind of hero's journey--one that replaces violence and domination with deep feeling and courageous communication. What a blessing!"--Iyanla Vanzant, author and host of Iyanla: Fix My Life (OWN)
"Blessed are the truthtellers, and Elizabeth Lesser is one of them. Cassandra Speaks is astute and witty, tender and soulful. It's a tapestry of memoir, cultural commentary, and spiritual fuel that inspires women--and all people left out of history's storytelling--to reclaim our lineage, to become prophetic alchemists in a world in grave need of healing."--Jamia Wilson, executive director and publisher of the Feminist Press
"Cassandra Speaks is a nod to the power of storytelling in our journey to build a truly equitable society. It lays bare the relationship between gender and power, and makes a compelling case for deepening our connections and embracing our collective humanity."--Tony Porter, CEO of A Call to Men
"Elizabeth is a wise and powerful storyteller. Cassandra Speaks helps us understand the roots of women's shame and guilt and offers a path forward--by changing our stories, we change our lives.--Eileen Fisher, founder of Eileen Fisher, Inc.
A book that will change women's lives--and therefore, everyone's lives--by calling out the stories that have held us back for millennia. Cassandra Speaks delivers an urgent message to women to listen within, follow their instincts, and do power differently.--Alyssa Milano, actor and activist
