Use your Mother Power to make a difference.

Dr. Jacqueline Hornor Plumez became inspired by the power of women when vacationing in Argentina. There she learned about the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo-women who risked their lives by protesting the kidnapping, torture and murder of their children by their country's brutal junta. She started to investigate women throughout the world who gained economic, political and moral power by using their natural maternal instincts.

Through her research and in-depth interviews with over 50 women from all walks of life, Dr. Plumez realized that there is a new, but as yet undiscovered, movement around the world: Mother Power. Mother Power is changing society today, just as women's liberation changed it a few decades ago. In story after story, she shows how mothers have become powerful forces for justice and fairness, and have dramatically changed the world in which we live. Along the way, she offers prescriptive suggestions on how women can enhance and use their own inherent Mother Power.

The reader will meet women who have used Mother Power to successfully challenge criminals from neighborhood drug dealers to corporate polluters; mothers who have made the practice of law, politics, science and medicine more humane, caring and effective; and mothers who have used their maternal skills to gain respect in all areas of the arts. Readers will see how women have used maternal management to create their own successful businesses and non-profit organizations that benefit society. The most exciting thing Dr. Plumez learned is that even women without income, education or other traditional sources of influence can use Mother Power to achieve their goals.
