The Yes Woman: How to reclaim your power by finally saying no

Author(s): Grace Jennings-Edquist

Essays & Criticism

In a world that teaches girls to become Yes Women, learning to say 'no' is a radical feat.For most of her life, Australian journalist Grace Jennings-Edquist had been keen to please. From school to career, in her appearance, friendships, and even everyday interactions, she was always anxious not to disappoint. Becoming a mother finally tipped her over the edge and she wound up in a psych ward. Grace could no longer avoid the truth: she was chronically addicted to saying yes. And she was not alone.Grace discovered that, in a phenomenon that crosses class, culture and sexuality, Yes Women are everywhere and there's a bit of Yes Woman in just about everyone. Interviewing scores of people in Australia and overseas, both ordinary women and experts, Grace gained a deeper understanding of the patriarchal origins of the Yes Woman, and developed a plan to seize control of her own life.The Yes Woman is a practical guide to recognising your own Yes Woman tendencies, measuring their cost on your health, and resisting that need to please. It won't be easy, but it'll be worth it.
