Celebrating Women’s History Month

POSTED BY prbythebook ON March 7, 2018

Women and women’s issues are celebrated in March during Women’s History Month – with March 8 also marking both International Woman’s Day and A Day Without Women. At PR by the Book, we’re delighted to commemorate and encourage the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in America – including the terrific authors and advocates we represent:


Captain Liz Clark is a surfer and environmentalist who has been sailing the seas on her 40-foot sailboat, Swell, since early 2006. She is the author of Swell: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening (Patagonia, 2018), was featured in the film Dear and Yonder (2009), and was nominated for National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2015. She holds a BA in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara. For more than a decade, she has lived a nomadic ocean lifestyle, often sailing alone in places where you don’t see many women traveling alone. Together with her “sea sisters,” Liz works to raise awareness and address social, environmental, health and safety concerns, particularly for women, in the places she visits, through the Changing Tides Foundation.


Hattie Bryant is an author, TV host/producer, and palliative care educator and advocate, whose most recent PBS series, “I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant,” is based on her palliative advocacy. Her book, I’ll Have it my Way, is a tool for patients and their families to minimize, if not avoid entirely the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when their end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out and known in advance – an issue particularly troublesome for women. Practical, informative and written in laypersons terms, I’ll Have it My Way is a how-to book made personal as it answers questions that will help readers select a proxy, and to provide friends and family with a few simple instructions and wishes.


Dr. Melissa Deuter is an expert and trendsetter in the world of mental health care. She founded Sigma Mental Health Urgent Care and in doing so is redefining how psychiatric services are delivered. Her new book, Stuck In The Sick Role: How Illness Becomes an Identity, addresses “failure to launch” young adults (and their families) who are stuck in a mindset of disability. Why are so many young women and men lacking jobs and basic life/social skills? Why are they not leaving for college with the life skills we had, one generation ago? Dr. Deuter demonstrates how changes in parenting, coupled with an increase in healthcare and mental health care consumption, have led too many to become “stuck in the sick role” indefinitely.


Dr. Reyzan Shali, born in Iraq, has refused to live a life defined by a society that minimizes women. Her journey as a physician began many years ago when she lost her father to cancer; that devastating event led to her lifelong goal of helping as many families and individuals as she can to improve their odds against this illness. Her new book, TEAMING UP AGAINST CANCER: Simple, Powerful Ways to Beat the Odds and Take Your Life Back, offers support for patients and caregivers, as well as a roadmap to remove cancer-causing elements from your environment and diet to live your healthiest life.



We celebrate these women, and all the talented women authors and experts we work with…

We’re proud to showcase the exciting work they do!
