Linda Hanson, Ed.D., has completed her new book "Woman Up! Finding Equality Stories of American Women": a timely and engaging work that shares stories of generations of women and the author's own experiences that explore how history, legislation, and the evolution of thought from Seneca Falls to today's Supermajority continue to affect women in America.
Author Linda Hanson, Ed.D., has had a 50-year career as a public school education art teacher, principal, superintendent, and small business owner. She has presented and published nationally on learning and leadership topics. She has a doctorate in education and has won numerous leadership awards.
Linda is married to a composer/symphony conductor and has three daughters and eight grandchildren, all of whom have contributed to her understanding of women in changing times.
Linda introduces her work, writing, "Full disclosure: I saw the Beatles debut on 'The Ed Sullivan Show.' I have witnessed women looking for fairness in structures, norms, and rules for three-quarters of a century. When I stretch my conceptual arms to either side of my life, I touch three centuries of women. My grandmother was born in the nineteenth century, my daughters in the twentieth century, and my granddaughters in the twenty-first century, who, with today's life expectancy, may live into the twenty-second century. 'Woman Up!' recounts stories of generations of women across time. Each era witnesses challenges and defeats as well as triumphs of positive change. 'Woman Up!' explores the journey of women in the United States through the centuries who have demanded equality (equal opportunities and resources) and equity (opportunities and resources needed for each person to reach equal outcomes). 'Woman Up!' examines the relationships between women and language, societal norms, science, careers, legislative decisions, femicide, violence, eugenics, feminism, and other compelling topics."

The fascinating account invites readers to reflect on their own stories while being inspired to commit to advancing women's place in society.
