Author Lesley Michaels takes you on an exploration of life, womanhood, feminism, and the often-disorienting effects of the three colliding as women struggle to hold up more than just their half of the sky.


Women represent all races, cultures, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations. As they establish a new ethos of equality and equity among themselves, each one in every community - from elders to our current generation of children and those still to come - will be positively impacted. It is our time to rise and be loud, be bold, to be unapologetic in our demand for benevolent equality and equity in the lives of each person. It is our time to reach back and lift one with us as we rise.w


Lesley Michaels:
Lesley Michaels was born to feminism. Her foundational ethos was shaped by her audacious paternal grandmother who was a 1st wave feminist and savvy businesswoman. Lesley came of age just as 2nd wave feminism was becoming a significant American social movement.


On the Shoulders of Mighty Women is a tribute to the power and grace of those who came before and the ones who will follow, the warriors and the fallen.


Lesley currently lives in Taos, NM, where she hosts the weekly podcast; Women We Should Know
