Conscious Feminism: How Women and Gen Z are Changing the World in Our New Millennium by Kashonia Carnegie Ph.D. is a non-fiction book that explains what conscious movement means and why the number two is so important now. She explains what the meaning of number two is, and uses data that she has collected over the years to prove her point. She also shares her story of who she is and how she got interested in this subject. Kashonia Carnegie also gives links to websites and she has activities for you to do as well. She uses world news to help prove her point.

I thought that Conscious Feminism by Kashonia Carnegie Ph.D. was extremely fascinating. I loved how she used world news events to explain her data. I also loved that she shared her story because I was able to relate. I should point out that she talks about abuse, so that might be a trigger warning. Kashonia Carnegie gave some really neat activities, which give you something to ponder. I loved that she discussed both sides, not just one side. I loved the websites she gave as well, and she was not spammy like some people so that was refreshing. I admit there was one part that was confusing, but not enough to turn me off. The charts were helpful too. I also loved that she did not get too preachy, as some of these books do. If you have been interested in the conscious movement or interested in the meaning of numbers, this is a well thought out book to help you.

Nearly 40 years ago, Kashonia Carnegie Ph.D. wrote in her “Power of Two” paper, that “from 2020 on, we’d begin to live in a totally different world”. How prophetic...and given the Covid19 pandemic we are living through right now, how timely that her newest book, Conscious Feminism, has been published. People everywhere, from all walks of life, are already ruminating on what our world will be like after Covid19. We are anticipating changes in the personal, domestic, business, and career areas of our lives. But where Carnegie hopes the biggest changes will come, as the book title suggests, is in the status of men and women, especially in reaching what almost seems an impossible dream: gender equality. Does Carnegie tell us how that longed-for status can be achieved? Well, yes, but readers will need to understand and think deeply about her very intelligent analysis of what needs to happen: it will take a total readjustment of attitudes and approaches to traditional male and female roles, with a recognition of how desirable it would be for each gender to cultivate more of the positive attributes each possesses. The accent here is on the positive, not negative attributes. By doing so, Carnegie feels strongly that over time, we can indeed reach equality and the world will be a much better place as a result.

Kashonia Carnegie’s writing style is friendly and personal, but even though she addresses familiar topics like the #MeToo movement and climate control, not all readers will find the reading easy. Carnegie’s audience needs open, enquiring minds as she pursues areas that skeptics often dismiss e.g. numerology, astrology. Readers might also need to be familiar with the thinking behind quantum physics. While I tend to be one of those skeptics, what she shared, especially about quantum physics, intrigued me. I became very curious to see how her forays into those areas would eventually lead to her primary focus: gender equality. Carnegie didn’t disappoint. Though I sometimes felt as if I were attending a university lecture, what the author presented was ever-fascinating, demanding that I think more deeply about everything. And I did. There is just so much I could tell you about Conscious Feminism but I could never do Kashonia Carnegie justice if I did that. You need to read this book for yourself. You need to understand why and how the transformation in our thinking can and must occur. Yes, males are not superior to females and, in this world of rising female energy, the reverse is also true. Carnegie has the final word on this subject: “The key, as always, is an attitude of equality.”

Conscious Feminism: How Women and Gen Z are Changing the World in Our New Millennium by Kashonia Carnegie, PhD is a non-fiction guide that covers the evolution of feminism and its surging rise from both a practical and holistic point of view. This is the fourth book in Carnegie's Conscious Books series, which also includes Conscious Intelligence, Conscious Self-Discovery, and Conscious Love. In this installment, Carnegie addresses the many components of feminism over the course of nineteen chapters. These range from religion, astrology, and numerology, to feminine energy and the evolution of dominant masculinity, the environment, Gen Z ground-breakers, and #MeToo silence-breakers, all the way through Covid-19 and the future beyond 2020.

I found Conscious Feminism to be a refreshing look at what feminism is for the generation that is next in line to inherit the planet. Kashonia Carnegie, PhD does an excellent job of tying together where we have come from and where we are headed, pushing myths, and dispelling the notions of the word that have somehow been reassigned to the perception of a radical and often violent revolt. Where Carnegie sets herself apart from other books on the topic is in the spiritual approach taken, reaching past the mainstream observance of feminism and instead exploring the sacred, metaphysical philosophy that few take the time to undertake. Carnegie also very bravely discusses how the #MeToo movement applied to her in the most terrifying way, using her personal experience to fill the gaps that represent the worst of a patriarchal society and fairly smooth over the balance that has been too long in the making.
