About this Book:

Drawing on John Paul II's work on the "feminine genius," this publication represents an attractive and moving synopsis of both John Paul's thought and Doyle's own desire to see women empowered and encouraged to embrace their identity.

Based on four key concepts-Receptivity, Generosity, Sensitivity, and Maternity-the book encourages women to accept, explore and develop these capacities in service of others and the world.

"For so long, some of the things that are particular to the feminine, such as the capacity to be emotionally available and attuned to others have been seen as weak or problematic. You can hear it every time someone talks about women being too emotional. What I found in my post-graduate study of John Paul's philosophical anthropology was that he saw that these capacities were powerfully linked to the receptive and nurturing nature of the whole female person. Rather than being a problem, he saw them as an answer to so many of the problems that face the world."
From the author

Doyle's hope is that the book will help many women engage with the reality of the feminine genius and that each woman's relationships and indeed the Church, local community and the world will benefit from it.
