Special Event: Jennifer Nadel - A Manifesto for Women Everywhere

WI Member: From £42.00

Venue: Not Applicable

Denman is proud to welcome Jennifer Nadel, an award-winning journalist, who in 2016 alongside award-winning actress Gillian Anderson, released the book "WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere". 

Gillian and Jennifer, friends for more than a decade, created an intensely practical guide for individual healing and change. It's the road map for life they wish they'd had and a rallying cry for women to try a different way of living. Most of us know that the way we are living at the moment - our 'me'-based culture -  isn't working. Rates of depression and self-harm are soaring and so are the levels of inequality. It is time to find a different, fairer and more compassionate way of living. To take the journey from "me" to "we". Combining tools which are practical, psychological and spiritual, We provides a path for dealing with the fallout from life’s inevitable emotional, physical, and spiritual challenges, and asks that women come together to create a fairer world. We's Manifesto is a call to a way of living that puts compassion at its heart. A declaration of intent to live differently -- to heal ourselves so that we can create lasting change in our own lives, in our communities and on a global level.

Jennifer will be joining us at Denman for an insightful talk, Q&A and book signing. This is an opportunity to find out more about how you can redefine success.
