LOUD WOMAN RELEASE: Book Offers Unique View of How “Good Girl Manners” Hold Women Back


BALTIMORE, MD (Sept. 15, 2021) – When women’s reproductive rights are under attack in Texas and the #MeToo movement reeling with Bill Cosby’s recently overturned conviction, the publication of Loud Woman: Goodbye, Inner Good Girl by Jill Celeste (Highlander Press: September 21, 2021) comes at a crucial time for all feminists, whether they be women or men. Available in trade paperback and digital formats, Loud Woman is available at www.jillceleste.com.

Loud Woman is part memoir and part self-help and will teach women how to live Louder lives—from pushing through their fears to trusting themselves more. Drawing lessons from Jill’s journey into a Loud Woman, readers of Glennon Doyle’s Untamed or Luvvie Ajayi Jones’ Professional Troublemaker will find Loud Woman a welcome addition to their feminist reading.

“More and more, we witness women standing up for themselves, taking up more space, and putting their needs first. From Simone Bile’s stand for her mental health to the first transgender bishop, Megan Rohrer, being installed in the Lutheran church, we are witnessing Loud Women rise up, share their gifts, and unapologetically be themselves. Loud Woman will help every woman do the same,” said Celeste.

“The coronavirus pandemic has amplified the disparities women experience in the workplace and in their homes,” said Deborah Kevin, 2021 graduate of Western Colorado University’s publishing master’s degree program and founder of Highlander Press. “What if women demanded more pay equity? What if more women demanded their spouses help with the kids’ homework? What if more women demanded that they work from home every day, instead of just during global pandemics? Through Loud Woman, women will learn how to increase their self-worth so they can make these demands with confidence.”

Loud Woman is divided into 10 sections with titles such as Worthy, Feminism, Boundaries, Manners, Fear, Discomfort, and Support. Within each section are chapters that read like short stories, each ending with a lesson that the reader can incorporate into her life.
