Former White House reporter and prominent political and cultural commentator, Sophia A. Nelson, says all women live by a Code, whether they realize it or not. The Code is a woman’s guidebook to living and informs her romantic relationships, friendships, family ties, career choices and personal sense outside of us. When a woman isn't living by the Code, her life is out of balance."

In ThThe Woman Code, Nelson draws from her personal faith and her vast experience as a corporate lobbyist, attorney, Capitol Hill Committee counsel and journalist, and offffers 20 powerful “keys” to help women unlock their internal Code for living. “ThThis book calls upon women of our time to connect cross-generationally, across racial and ethnic barriers, across socioeconomic groups and even across politics, to unlock the ‘Woman Code’ inside each of us,” Nelson says. “Together we can build better lives, a closer sisterhood, more meaningful professional achievements and a better world for us all.”

ThThe Woman Code is broken into five sections that cover a woman’s personal, emotional, spiritual, professional and relational experiences. ThThe Codes create a roadmap of timeless values coupled with modern-day approaches to help women face the challenges of our time, including:

  • Knowing your value and worth

  • Teaching people how to treat you

  • Making peace with your past

  • Leading from within

  • Lifting other women as you climb

Nelson opens the book by connecting with women through a powerful and deeply personal introduction that lays the foundation for why she penned the book. The Woman Code, as New York Times bestselling author Arianna Huffington says, is indeed “a book for our time.”

The Woman Code will launch, worldwide, on October 14th with a six-city book tour with including speaking engagements and book signings in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.
