In the time of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement, international bestselling author and leading global expert on mental strength Amy Morin turns her focus to feminism, explaining what it means—and what it takes—to be a mentally strong woman.

“Sage advice on building mental strength. Exemplary guidance for women of all ages.”—Library Journal (starred review)


Amy Morin, psychotherapist and author of 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, teaches women everywhere how to fortify themselves and face challenges in this powerful, necessary book for our time, breaking down the thirteen habits and mind-sets that women must avoid in order to master their mental strength. These thirteen tried-and-true principles show women how to tackle problems and tough situations in order to live their best—and most powerful—lives, and there’s no better guide through the process than Morin, the leading global voice on mental strength.


Drawing on scientific evidence, case studies from her own patients, and even celebrity stories of hardship and triumph, Morin shows how mental strength can come from anywhere regardless of career, marriage, or family life. From introducing ways to stop blaming yourself to becoming a rule-breaker, Morin demonstrates how to navigate some of the hardest challenges that women face, while proposing experience-based solutions that promote mental fortitude. By integrating these easy-to-follow exercises and practical tips into daily life, Morin shows that mental strength is achievable—and necessary—to become a strong woman. In addition she discusses how mental strength practice can help with the difficult realities of sexism that still exist even in the era of the #MeToo movement and awareness of workplace harassment, providing specific strategies for dealing with these persistent issues.
