True Historic Sagas of Courageous Women

Neal Katz has had a fascination for history since he studied the Civil War in high school. Believing that the greatest untold story is the horrific treatment of women throughout history, he promotes a full reckoning of their mistreatment and hopes this exposure of the truth will result in the general empowerment of women.

Having overcome his own childhood abuse, Neal Katz writes and lectures to inspire all people, especially women, empowering them to know that they have the ability to manifest any vision for their life they desire. Neal’s debut novel, Outrageous, Rise to Riches, received 12 literary awards.

While feminism is often a topic involved in discussions about his writing, Neal states, “Before gender, race, religion, pigmentation, nationality or anything else, we are human beings and we should all treat one another the way we want to be treated. Women, in particular, have been mistreated long enough. Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin are iconic figures for tenaciously moving forward, as they proclaimed, ‘Upward & Onward.’”
