Modeled after Maria Shriver’s Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah’s goal with Put On Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem. A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages sixteen to twenty-four are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown’s assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the “hollywood ideal” of what a confident beautiful woman should look like. The result: she’s one of the biggest A-list celebrities in Hollywood.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Like her 1999 autobiography, Ladies First, this mentoring guide draws on the experiences of herself and her friends to lay its life lessons. Put on Your Crown focuses on issues such as partner violence and sexual abuse that pervade our society. A personal lesson in self-empowerment.”

    " Loved this book! While it was written by the celebrity known as Queen Latifah, it was really written by a woman named Dana Owens, a girl from from Newark, NJ who became famous via her alter-ego. Inspirational, intelligent and wise, this book speaks to women and girls of all ages about accepting and respecting themselves through anything life may throw at them. "

    " I love Queen Latifah. Self help isn't really my thing though. If inspirational words from the Queen is what you need, you got it. "

    " It was an easy read. She didn't share anything that was too profound, but for a young girl who is coming of age and needs some words of wisdom this would be a good book to suggest. "

    " A great book. I admire Queen Latifah even more after reading her words. Never underestimate yourself, and have confidence. Great lessons in how to be comfortable with and accepting of who you are. "
