About the Author

Eliza VanCort is a Cook House Fellow at Cornell University, an advisory board member of the Performing Arts for Social Change, and the creator of a highly regarded talk commissioned by MIT that focused on mentorship and institutionalized racism. She is the founder of the Actor's Workshop of Ithaca and has dedicated herself to empowering women of all experiences and backgrounds to claim space. VanCort gave a 2018 TED Talk called "Women, Power and Revolutionizing Speech," in which she shared her personal story and offered concrete yet transformative tools for real change.


"Women who want to be their most empowered selves both at home and at work, while raising up the women around them, must read this book!" -Professor Christine Guest, professor, Emmy-Nominated filmmaker, produced the award-winning documentary The Women of Titmouse Animation

"As a father who values self-sufficiency, confidence, and strength, I'll be giving this book to my teenage daughter! It's absolutely a must read!" -Joe Desena, CEO/Founder of the Spartan Race and bestselling author of Spartan Up and Spartan Fit

"This welcome book is warm, funny, and genuinely edifying resource which combines big ideas with real-world strategies. VanCort seamlessly emphasizes both transformative individual growth and the power of intersectional engagement." -Professor Andrew Chignell, Laurence S. Rockefeller professor in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University, co-director of the Hope and Optimism Project (HopeOptimism.com)

"This powerful guidebook offers women the road map we wish we had when launching our careers. It is a critical call to action for women to unite across differences to drive change." -Octavia Abell and Kyleigh Russ, co-founders of Govern for America and Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees

"Women of every day race and background who want to claim space confidently and unapologetically will find concrete answers and edifying inspiration. Challenging, motivating, and, transformative." -Misty Monroe, actor, educator, and creator of her award-winning, critically acclaimed one-woman show, "Unapologetically Black"

"There are those that consciously or unconsciously try to diminish the voices of women as well as black, indigenous, and other people of color of any gender. Eliza presents us with powerful and practical strategies we can use to be our own champions and better champions of others as we individually and collectively claim our space to be heard." -Sara Xayarath Hernandez, Associate Dean of Inclusion & Student Engagement in the Graduate School at Cornell University

"This book is as warm, authentic, empathetic, funny, and edifying as Eliza's (in-person) talks and seminars. I respect Eliza's work, and more importantly, the students I work with in higher education have truly benefitted from her transformative and practical advice, tools, and resources for years. With this important book, the world has access to her as well." -Dean Dionetta Jones Crayton, Associate Dean and Director MIT Office of Minority Education
