Roland Ezri announces the publication of his book “Equal Partners.” The book argues that women, at least in the Western world, can demand that the power pie be equally divided. “Equal Partners” took eight years of research and writing, and is now available at all major online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Booksamillion. More information can be found at the book’s Web site, http://www.equalpartners.ca/.

(PRWEB) August 22, 2006 -- In the new book “Equal Partners,” author Roland Ezri suggests to Western women a new approach that will allow them to share, on a 50-50 basis, political and economic power. More information can be found at the book’s Web site, http://www.equalpartners.ca/.

“In my book, I am pleading for an end to single-sex leadership,” Ezri says. “Ultimate success will require determination, patience and time. But it will happen. And those of you who are still young will witness it.”

One of the most vexing problems of the last 25 years is the fact that despite the great progress made by Western women, they occupy very few top political and corporate posts. In politics, only 13 percent of the members of the House of Representatives are women. In the corporate world, only 13 percent of corporate officers are women. How then, can women share in the leadership and be able to shape the society that they live in?

What women have accomplished so far is the first stage only, Ezri says in “Equal Partners.” The book argues a need for a new approach, a second stage in which women take matters into their own hands. They have 50 percent of the vote, and 85 percent of all retail purchases are made by them. “Equal Partners” urges women to use their power to effect major changes in their lives.

“Equal Partners” revolves around three essential questions: Why should women seek political and economic power? What is standing in their way (in other words, why haven’t they done so decades ago)? And how does one go about it? The consideration of these questions is a part of stage two.

“Equal Partners” proposes that a group of dedicated women and men, referred to as the E.P. (Equal Partners) team, begin the process, and carry on for as long as it takes until full equality between the genders is achieved. This process can start in any country and spread from there.

Roland Ezri was born in Egypt, and even though he has lived in Canada for over 40 years, he had to cross a difficult cultural line before being able to write such a book. His career as a Certified General Accountant exposed him to many situations. In particular, Ezri says he was particularly disturbed by two things: lack of respect toward women, and the implausible reasons used to block their career paths.

“Equal Partners” took eight years of research and writing, and is now available at all major online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Booksamillion. More information can be found at the book’s Web site, http://www.equalpartners.ca/.
