In Women to Women, fifteen black scholars, educators, and community leaders uncover the essence of the African-American woman that has made her a pillar both in her own community and in American society at large. Whether you are a professional, a lay leader, a mother, or simply someone who wants to probe the full potential of your culture and your womanhood, you will find fresh definition, affirmation, and support plus workable solutions for life's problems and challenges. From singlehood to sisterhood to motherhood, these writers offer practical insights into some of the thorniest issues women face.

Excellent read for christian women whether african-am or not Nov 14, 2001
This book is an excellent read for any woman, not just african americans. The book gives insight into the mind of a woman and all that Christian women go through in their daily walk with the Lord. The book acknowledges that even though you are a Christian, there are still issues you face that bring you to the realization that you are still human, and every thing is not magically fixed when you accept the Lord as your personal saviour. I would highly recommend this book and in fact, I am purchasing several copies for Christmas gifts.
