An impassioned plea and workable solution for women and men to imagine a better world, embrace their differences, find ways to end oppression, and learn how to work better together.
We are currently at a strategic cultural intersection with relationships between women and men eroding. And it seems no one knows what to do. While it is good for women to expose their pain, what often happens is that they immediately blame the person at the other end of it, which sets up a never-ending cycle of accusations, denial, avoidance, and ultimately devastation for everyone involved.
This moment of discovery should not signal the end but instead become an opportunity to create a different world where men and women are better together.
Better Together is a beacon of hope in a challenging storm. Its where thoughts can be rechanneled and hope rekindled as author Danielle Strickland offers steps toward a real and workable solution. Her premise is that two things are needed for change:
1) imagine a better world, and
2) understand oppression.
Understanding how oppression works is an important part of undoing it.
Danielle says, "I refuse to believe that all men are bad. I also refuse to believe that all women are victims. I dont want to be just hopeful, I want to be strategically hopeful. I want to work toward a better world with a shared view of the future that looks like equality, freedom, and flourishing."

Christine Caine Founder of Propel Women and A21

Thankfully, Danielle Strickland has written this timely, needed, and necessary book, Better Together. Danielle has a unique ability to navigate tricky terrain with truth, boldness, gentleness, and courage. This book will not only lovingly correct, but also inspire and instruct both men and women with grace and understanding. We need each other to do everything we are called and created to do! This subject is important to God. As Danielle writes, 'We aren't just cleaning up a mess. We are building a new world.' And we are unquestionably better together!'

'Danielle Strickland understands what it means to fight for a better future. She realizes brokenness leads to better stories and difficult conversations lead to better connections. In this book she addresses the inequities and injustices that make it nearly impossible, but even more important to have a level playing field. Whether it's recognizing opportunities to improve or acknowledging obstacles that keep us from being better, Danielle has unusual and compassionate insight. This book doesn't offer easy answers or casual blame. Instead, Danielle insists that we drive toward solutions that celebrate both our differences and our diversities. For Danielle, it's not political; it's personal. It's personal because of the people she's known, the realities she's seen, and the overpowering hope she holds to.' Reggie Joiner Founder of Orange/The reThink Group
'I consider Danielle Strickland to be a world-impacting leader and that just about anything she says ought to be taken very seriously. Better Together is such a book.

'In Better Together, Danielle Strickland provides a practical and timely picture of what could be. A glimpse of the 'strategically hopeful.'

Brad Lomenick Founder of BLINC, author of H3 Leadership and The Catalyst Leader
'It's hard to think of a subject more universally important than this, nor a person better positioned to address it than Danielle Strickland. At a time of such pain and antipathy between the sexes, Danielle's voice rings out with prophetic conviction and biblical clarity, mapping out a path for reconciliation and hope.' Pete Greig Leader of 24-7 Prayer International, senior pastor of Emmaus Rd, UK
'There are more than a few gaps remaining in the relationship between men and women in leadership. Danielle does a brilliant job of compelling us, men and women alike, to work toward a strong, healthy future. What you lose in ignoring the issues costs everyone, including you. If you're looking for practical steps to take and compelling reasons to take them, this book holds the road map.' Carey Nieuwhof Author and founding pastor of Connexus Church
'There is an urgent need for the message Danielle is presenting in her latest book, Better Together. The church greatly needs this reminder to rediscover the Edenic vision of male and female co-reigning in mutual honor and interdependence (Genesis 1:26)--thereby bringing the kingdom of God to earth.' Colonel Janet Munn Director of The Salvation Army's International Social Justice Commission
