    Global warming is a fact, as evidenced by research that indicates a degree Fahrenheit increase in average global temperature over the last years. A further degree increase is likely in the next century, melting polar icecaps and raising ocean levels worldwide. We have the knowledge to undo much of the climatic damage we have created. The time to act is now. Liberty for Women is an eye-opening book that vividly charts a new individualist feminism for the 21st century in a highly lucid, provocative, and inspiring way. 'Choice' is the key, and every woman's choices and expressions of self-ownership must be equally and legally respected, from housewives to CEOs. Only then can a meaningful debate arise over which choices may be the best ones for women. In this landmark book, Derek Bok explores how colleges can reap the benefits of these discoveries and create a more robust undergraduate curriculum for the twenty-first century. Prior to this century, most psychologists thought that creativity, empathy, resilience, conscientiousness, and most personality traits were largely fixed by early.
