about this item

Fox News political commentator and legal analyst Eboni Willams believes that women shouldn't hide their beauty--instead they should embrace it as a positive and powerful attribute.

Williams believes that women have been sold the lie that being "pretty" comes at the expense of being taken seriously. If a woman is physically attractive, often there is a presumption that she lacks the substance and smarts necessary to provide leadership in business and other endeavors. This narrative implies that being "pretty" and being capable were mutually exclusive. In PRETTY POWERFUL, Eboni Williams rejects that narrative. She says that to accept that false notion is to leave an incredibly powerful tool on the table. The knee-jerk reaction for most women is to feel shamed by this potential advantage-but Williams says it's okay for women to take full advantage of the most immediate and obvious attribute at their disposal. Embrace your beauty!
