Description


-Ensuring the full participation of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the twenty-first century. The stories in this book of people making a difference give me hope. We can use our power and purpose to help all women. And once we do, we can fast-forward to a better world for all.- -- from the foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton

- Fast Forward] outlines a female power action plan: how to find yours and use it while supporting other women . . . The book is full of compelling studies and stats.- -- Elle


Books like Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In have helped advance a conversation about women and their careers that has resonated with millions of readers. Fast Forward, by two women leaders whose experience spans corporate America, public service, and global diplomacy, takes the next step. Through interviews with a network of more than seventy trailblazing women, Fast Forward shows women how to accelerate their growing economic power and combine it with purpose to find both success and meaning in their lives.

Companies, countries, and organizations the world over are waking up to today's new reality. Women control the lion's share of purchasing power and are increasingly essential to competitiveness. Women are using their power for purpose, redefining what power and success mean in the process. Through clear, practical advice and personal stories of women around the world -- including Hillary Clinton, Geena Davis, Christine Lagarde, and Diane von Furstenberg -- Fast Forward shows every woman how to know her power, find her purpose, and connect with others to achieve her life's goals.

-A durable contribution to the continued efforts to effect change for women.- -- Kirkus Reviews
