Abstract:
"Pat Mitchell is a serial ceiling smasher. A former news reporter and news anchor, she was the first woman to host a nationally syndicated daily talk show, the first woman president of Turner Broadcasting, the first woman president of PBS and of CNN Productions. She has been on Variety's list of "Most Powerful Women in Hollywood" and Forbes' list of "Women Changing the World." Today, she is the curator of the groundbreaking global TEDWomen conference. Pat Mitchell is seventy-four years old, and she is a dangerous woman. What makes Mitchell dangerous is her lifelong insistence on redefining power on her terms, and in leveraging that power to manifest her vision of a better world. In Becoming a Dangerous Woman, she shares her intimate stories of taking a hammer to all that glass, and offers mentoring to women who want to manifest their own personal or public uprisings. A media matriarch and visionary leader, Mitchell is ready to bestow all that she knows, and the lessons she's learned the hard way, to make it easier for the generations following her. Not only does she share her experiences--the private struggles and the public battles--she offers readers personal stories from other world-changing women who have faced dangerous times by becoming dangerous women. From Abigail Disney, who is shaking up Hollywood to fund women-headed movies, to Rada Boric, who is poised to become the next president of Croatia, Mitchell invites readers to join the dangerous, disruptive women around the world--women who are creating a more just and liberated life for everyone"-- Provided by publisher.
