Paradigm Found: Leading and Managing for Positive Change
A Practical Framework for Positive Social Change In 1987, Anne Firth Murray had the idea that funding should go to grassroots women's organizations around the globe and that the recipients themselves should decide how to use that money.

Page xxviii - Today, many things indicate that we are going through a transitional period, when it seems that something is on the way out and something else is painfully being born.
