Product description

Review

A brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide . . . Far from making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women participate in the labour force . . . The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents (Publishers’)

Weekly (starred review) (‘This wonderful book combines a denunciation of horrible abuses with clear-eyed hope and some compelling practical strategies. The courageous women described here, and millions more like them, deserve nothing less’)

THE NEW YORK TIMES (‘An inspiring testament to women’s courage, and their struggle for hope and recovery’)

Khaleid Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner (‘These stories show us the power and resilience of women who would have every reason to give up but never do . . . You will not want to put this book down’)

Book Description

A call to arms against the most pervasive human rights violation of the 21st century: the oppression of women in the developing world.
