Voices of the 21st Century: Conscious, Caring Women Who Make a Difference


Back cover text:

50 Extraordinary Women Come Together To Celebrate A New Era—And You’re Included

When we open our hearts to the world and lead with empathy, we are unstoppable. In the fifth edition of Voices of the 21st Century, we shine the spotlight on inspiring women who are transforming the lives of those around them through loving dedication and compassion.

By sharing their personal struggles and challenges, these brave women reimagine the boundaries of what is possible and come to the conclusion that the potential of their influence on the world is limitless.

Paula M. Kramer survived a horrific childhood, decades of misdiagnoses for a childhood spinal injury, and her husband’s death when their daughter was a baby. Her workshops provide rock star strategies for ending negative workplace gossip, breaking glass ceilings, and reducing workplace violence with positive words and actions.

Gail Watson is president and founder of Women Speakers Association (WSA), the go-to place for innovative leaders, change-agents, and women with a message to connect, collaborate, and grow their visibility worldwide in order to fulfill their mission. As the first-ever global community for women speakers, WSA provides a platform for women to get seen, booked, and paid AND be part of a growing network reaching women in 120 countries.
