WHY HOST CATHERINE & AMY?
Catherine and Amy plan for an empowering and confidence building talk. This could be an especially great event in February as a lead in to International Women’s Day 2019.They could demonstrate to girls that they don’t need to be empowered, that they have inherently powerful traits which they just need to embrace and utilize.
ABOUT THE BOOK: THE FEMININE REVOLUTION
Challenging old and outdated perceptions that feminine traits and qualities are weaknesses, The Feminine Revolution revisits those characteristics to show how they are powerful assets that should be embraced rather than maligned. With an upbeat blend of self-help and fresh analysis, The Feminine Revolution reboots femininity for the modern woman and gives her the tools to explore the full range of her powers. Each chapter starts with a story about Amy’s and Catherine’s experiences in confronting a feminine quality or trait traditionally perceived as weak and then digs into the history and contemporary assumptions before reframing the quality or trait in question. They provide tools and ideas for how to implement the practice of integrating the feminine quality in your life, allowing you to tap into your feminine superpowers for a happier, more authentic life.

LENGTH & TOPIC OF PRESENTATION
THE FEMININE REVOLUTION: Embracing Your Authentic Femininity for Your Best Life
In this presentation, Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors will share insights from, The Feminine Revolution, reframing the power of feminine qualities for women, men, boys and girls. Using their own personal journeys alongside lessons taken from history, Amy and Catherine will confront twenty-one feminine qualities currently perceived as weak and reframe them as powerful tools that are the basis for lasting relationships, creativity, and authenticity. They will discuss why this shift needs to start at an early age, how to embrace compassion and sensitivity with peers and loved ones; and the power to be taken from nurturing relationships. This workshop will challenge misconceptions, inspire attendees to think differently, and share practical tools to understand the power of femininity, sensitivity, intuition, and even our tendency to cry.
The session will include a presentation, an interactive discussion among students, and a Q&A.
