In her new book, Vital Voices, Alyse Nelson shares searing stories of pioneering women who are changing our world. This powerful account describes a 15-year journey during which Vital Voices grew from a State Department initiative into a global movement that transcends national, cultural, economic and political divides to advance a transformative model of leadership.


“This timely book tells the story of a movement that is transforming our world and of an organization—Vital Voices— that is clearing the path. Its message is about more than equality, it's about leadership, justice, and hearing those who in prior generations possessed only a single right—to remain silent. If you are looking for inspiration about what is possible, and for a challenge about what is still necessary, here is your guide.”

—Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State

“From the poorest villages to the highest government offices, women are leading the way in tackling humanity's biggest challenges. Alyse Nelson's Vital Voices imagines what's possible if we can fully tap the unique leadership potential of all women and girls. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in building a better world.”

—Melinda French Gates, co-chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
