THE ROAD TO WOMANHOOD IS NEVER AN EASY PATH, ESPECIALLY IN A WORLD DRIVEN BY EGO, FEAR, AND MISOGYNY.
For hundreds of years, women have been treated less than, not just by men, but by women too. They have been violated, abused, shamed, blamed and silenced. Denied their basic human rights. They’ve carried wounds and stories from the past, burdened by labels, told that they’re too much yet never quite enough.
They learned to please, to give away their power. To hide their gifts, and tame the wild woman inside.
As a result they’ve disconnected from who they really are, waging war within themselves and each other, using food, alcohol, sex, relationships and shopping as a way to self-medicate and stuff down the disease of not-good-enough-ness, while pushing and striving to create success in their work and life to prove themselves and their worth.
THE WORLD IS CRAVING MORE.
More women willing to show up as their perfectly imperfect messy selves.
More women willing to uncage themselves from the stories of the past and live with passion, purpose, integrity and freedom.
More women reclaiming their power and owning their darkness as well as the light.
LAURA IS HONOURED TO BE CO-AUTHOR OF UNCAGED: RISE OF THE BADASS.

This book is an essential read for women of all ages, and a celebration of our strength, courage and resilience in the face of adversity.
READ AN EXCERPT FROM LAURA’S CHAPTER ‘FROM BROKEN TO BADASS’
“I smacked my father in the face.
It was just a tap really because I was terrified to unleash the real depth of my pain, my heartache, and frustration. And as soon as I did it I wished that I hadn’t.
You see, that smack I gave my father was like a red flag to a bull.
It all happened so fast I had no time to become aware of what was happening or avoid it. In what felt like nanoseconds he launched at me and punched me so hard in the face, the head, the body, everywhere.
If I thought I was scared or terrified before, I was wrong. Because in the few minutes that this particular beating lasted I honestly thought I was going to die.
Don’t get me wrong, this was not the first time. But it was by far the worst time. It felt like it would never end.
We were the only ones at home at this time. Just the two of us.
My father pushed me. He punched me. He kicked me all over the kitchen. I had nowhere to turn. There was no-one to help me. No-one to protect me.
The person who I trusted to do that (up until this moment) was busily beating me like I was a grown man in a pub brawl instead of loving, honouring, respecting and looking out for me as fathers are supposed to do.”
