An impassioned plea and workable solution for women and men to imagine a better world, embrace their differences, find ways to end oppression, and learn how to work better together.
Is it possible after the #MeToo and #ChurchToo movements for men and women to actually find hope and healing and create a better world - together?
We are at a strategic cultural intersection with relationships between women and men eroding. While it is good for women to expose their pain, abuse, and experiences of gender inequity and oppression, what often follows is a never-ending cycle of blame, accusations, denial, avoidance, and, ultimately, devastation for everyone involved.
Better Together is a beacon of hope in this challenging storm. Author Danielle Strickland offers practical steps toward a real and workable solution that include two things needed for change:
- A vision of a better world
- An understanding of oppression
Understanding how oppression works, whether it relates to gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or race, is an important part of undoing it. Let Danielle inspire you to believe that change is possible and equip you with ideas and strategies that will compel you to action.

"I consider Danielle Strickland to be a world-impacting leader and that just about anything she says ought to be taken very seriously. Better Together is such a book.

It's been two thousand years since Jesus set women free from oppressive patriarchy; let's get this done already!"
