I AM STRENGTH: True Stories of Everyday Superwomen Kindle Edition
About the Author
"In my life and work, I have learned that the experiences shared in Alyssa Waugh's I AM STRENGTH are all too common. That's why strong and insightful voices like the ones brought together in this collection are so important--they remind us that we are not alone, that we have so much to share, and that our sharing has the power to help others feel seen and supported in their own lives. These stories are a gift..."
Chloé McFeters, director of You Look a Lot Like Me and author of Still, But Not Silent
"The stories in I AM STRENGTH are like long, silk strands of what it means to be a woman. Every woman will find a point of recognition in this collection. From Bryne Lewis' powerful meditation on when and how to escape to Amber Fallon's tension-filled tale of learning to heed the red flags, these stories will leave you both breathless and hopeful all at once. In this collection, there are threads of love, lust, longing, fear, abandonment, abuse, strength, survival, and everything in between--woven beautifully together to comprise the fabric of femininity. This collection of stories is a must read."
--Amye Archer, author of Fat Girl Skinny and editor of My Body, My Words.
"I AM STRENGTH is just that. Packed full of courage and inspiration. Something to embolden, heal, and encourage women of all generations and backgrounds. Build each other up, my dear women. Share your challenges, your triumphs, your losses, and your victories, in whatever way works best for you, as these brave women have done. We all need more of this. Thank you to all the contributors and editors of this amazing book, for creating a gift to the rest of us."
--Shannon Watson, Managing Editor of Greed Media
"What makes this compilation extraordinary is that it does not rely on celebrity or well-established writers for content. This book gives voice to women who have remained voiceless for too long. It reminds us of the heroism of women facing what most casually dismiss as common challenges of life. It illuminates the courage and resilience, the resourcefulness and commitment women deploy daily to survive in a world where discrimination and injustice, not to mention cruelty, are all too common. It reminds us that small miracles happen daily. Refresh your faith in humanity here."

As they say, the truth is stranger than fiction, and it's absolutely the case in this collection, from sections on "Body Positivity and Self-Love" to "Overcoming Abuse and Injustice." The diversity of voices selected here by editor Alyssa Waugh gives great gravity to what these women are writing. Very real issues and often harrowing experiences do not get lost in the perfection of one writer's style or voice -- all are beautifully written and even more impactful in their contrast. Prepare to experience the cultural moments you read about in the headlines through the lens of your mother, sister, partner, friend. These writers bring it home.
