Summary
In a world that teaches girls to become Yes Women, learning to say 'no' is a radical feat. For most of her life, Australian journalist Grace JenningsEdquist had been keen to please. From school to career, in her appearance, friendships, and even everyday interactions, she was always anxious not to disappoint. Becoming a mother finally tipped her over the edge, and she wound up in a mental health unit. Her attempts to be everything to everyone and to do it all perfectly had taken their toll. Grace could no longer avoid the truth: she was chronically addicted to saying yes. And she was not alone. Grace discovered that, in a phenomenon that crosses class, culture and sexuality, Yes Women are everywhere, and there's a bit of Yes Woman in just about everyone. Interviewing scores of people in Australia and overseas, both ordinary women and experts, Grace gained a deeper understanding of the patriarchal origins of the Yes Woman, and developed a plan to seize control of her own life. The Yes Woman is a practical guide to recognising your own Yes Woman tendencies, measuring their cost on your health, and resisting that need to please. It won't be easy, but it'll be worth it
