Actress, writer and producer Gillian Anderson was at the New York Society for Ethical Culture this week. She and journalist Jennifer Nadel discussed their just released book, “WE: A Manifesto for Women” in a two hour conversation.
As the publicity blurb says about the book, “WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere—an inspiring, empowering, and provocative manifesto for change written by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel. Change that we can all effect, one woman at a time. Change that provides a crucial and timely antidote to the “have-it-all” superwoman culture and instead focuses on what will make each and every one of us happier and more free. Change that provides an answer to the nagging sense of “is that it?” that almost all of us can succumb to when we wake in the dead of night”.
The book looks at why women are so prone to self-criticism, why depression among women is sky-rocketing, why they insist in competing against each other and not supporting other women instead, and what they can do to feel happier with their lives and their choices. Self-care, if you will.
Anderson and Nadel are also in the middle of a publicity tour of the U.K. and the U.S., with appearances on the BBC, CBS This Morning, The View and as part of the Build Series.
Watch a short interview about the book with the two women on CBS This Morning below.
