New Book Iron Butterflies Features Peace X Peace Founder

Patricia Smith Melton remembers a painful past
 
 
May 3, 2010 - PRLog -- Washington, DC, May 3, 2010. Iron Butterflies, a new book by Birute Regine about women transforming themselves and subsequently the world, features a very personal story about Peace X Peace founder Patricia Smith Melton.

Even though Smith Melton, an artist in her own right, is often profiled for her work as Peace X Peace founder and editor of Sixty Years, Sixty Voices: Israeli and Palestinian Women (http://www.60voices.org), she rarely discusses her less recent past. In the several-page anecdote, Smith Melton reveals little-known facts of her life. Her telling is intimate and profound.

In addition to Smith Melton’s story, the author also includes content about three members of the Peace X Peace Advisory Council: Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, Dr. Azizah al-Hibri, and Dr. Riane Eisler.

About her own book, Regine says, “What began as a potentially fascinating book project has morphed into something of a personal mission and a calling for me.” Iron Butterflies was mentioned recently in a Huffington Post article by Russ Wellen, who says “Iron Butterflies is especially essential reading for young women who often fail to appreciate just how hard-won are the opportunities they enjoy today.”
