recently co-authored What the Village Gave Me
, a collection of personal experiences and reflections on conceptualizations of womanhood, beauty, and gender roles. This book illuminates how these issues intersect with the transmission of cultural norms, marriage rates, and the development of professional self-efficacy. While the book emphasizes perspectives of women of color, the concepts apply in some form to all women.
