To become qwomen who count, q women must think of themselves, think of others, and think big, contends author Susan Bulkeley Butler. Before and since breaking barriers to become the first woman partner at Accenture, Butler has passionately championed the cause of equality for women in education, in the workforce and in society. In Women Count: A Guide to Changing the World, she shows how the world can become a better place in myriad ways with more involvement from women. Today's world---with its wars, corporate ethics violations, economic meltdowns and societal strife---needs the unique strengths and attributes of women more than ever, Butler contends. Women make up about half of the country's population and half its work-force, yet account for only a small percentage of the leadership roles in government, business and beyond. Butler brings her experiences and insights directly to readers by showing how they can collectively use their strengths to improve the world. Together, women must envision equality, build teams, take action, and help one another through mentoring, philanthropy, education and public service, according to Butler. Then, and only then, she asserts, can women truly change the world and become qwomen who count.qIn 1899, Simmons College was founded in Boston with a bequest from the estate of clothing manufacturer John Simmons. ...
