It’s Time for a Revolution to Empower Women

There is enormous pressure on women to be sexy and act sexually. It undermines their self-confidence and their love lives and possibly even contributes to sexual violence toward women. Despite this, women continue trying to meet increasingly unrealistic and unattainable beauty ideals that confuse their value with their looks and sexuality. As a result, 90% of women are unhappy with how they look.

According to Dr. Susan Edelman, that’s not empowerment. It’s more like people-pleasing. Real power in dating is knowing what’s best for you and having the courage to stand up for yourself when something doesn’t work for you. When you’re trying to please everyone else, he can’t fall in love with the real you.

Dr. Susan helps women be more powerful by urging them to learn what works best for them—instead of what they’re programmed to believe is “normal” by today’s culture – and by helping them live according to their own standards.

Our society is continuously sending women confusing messages about who they should be. It leads many women to think that being as sexy as possible will give them power in dating and relationships – but that’s not true. In reality, women have more power and confidence when they can accept and love themselves the way they are, knowing their inner beauty is most important.

You can change your mindset, your love life, and the world. Let’s stand together to create a healthier and more accepting world.

Help your sisters, your daughters, and yourselves by joining the revolution! Be your own Brand of Sexy.

This is a book about winning the dating game.
