I hunker down and figure out what pieces I need to know more about (one time I even went on an assignment to find the answers). Eventually the writer's block problem is solved but by then I have a new problem - I'm invariably so caught up with what I just discovered I want to continue writing from that data. Mostly though I think writer's block happens because you're missing info you need.(less)

Uprising: A New Age is Dawning for Every Mother's Daughter

If ever there was a time for women to speak up it is today. Uprising is about women speaking up all over the world. It's about change and the demands of women and girls who know the whole world will be a better place when women and girls are at the table with men and boys.

“Like an unfinished symphony, her story played on my mind for most of my life. It would rock to the tune of the passage of time, an adagio of high notes, low notes an illusive movements. Then when I least expected it, I happened upon the missing notes in the life of Charlotte Howe Taylor.”
Sally Armstrong

“...in Afghanistan, the women refer to their illiteracy as blindness. When I asked them what they meant by that, one woman explained: 'I couldn't read, so I couldn't see what was going on.' In fewer than a dozen words, she described a system that men in power have relied on for centuries-keep women uneducated so they won't know what's going on.”
Sally Armstrong, Uprising: A New Age is Dawning for Every Mother's Daughter

“The changes I describe in this book are not about the triumph of women over men, Western values over Eastern, or one religion over another. They're aimed at solving the world's most intractable problems - poverty, conflict, and violence.”
Sally Armstrong, Uprising: A New Age is Dawning for Every Mother's Daughter
