Newton’s Third Law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The Third Law book shows us how true this is for women trying to raise themselves up and out of poverty. Even as women work diligently to change their lives, there are strong forces beyond their control pushing back on that change. In her book, The Third Law, author Tamra Ryan tells stories of over 100 women she has learned about during her time as CEO of Women’s Bean Project. Through those stories, she explores what is required for chronically unemployed and impoverished women to create new lives for themselves and their families.
