Finally, the truth...and the facts that back it up
Investigative writing at its finest. Although the stories are sometimes very disturbing, we need to hear them. This is not just a chronicle of women's plight, far from it. It's actually a testament to the human spirit, as we see over and over again how women rise up from their tragic conditions and create change for themselves and others. Sometimes viciously assaulted for telling the truth by the very authorities who are supposed to protect them, around the world even the most illiterate and unsophisticated women rise to the occasion and evoke transformation in oftentimes astonishingly brutal, entrenched systems. A must read for all people of good will and moral conscience.

Read this book!
Already a classic, the authors give an excellent overview of issues women worldwide face as the 'lesser' of the genders. It's time for women and men to learn and act on behalf of their suffering isters.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book in that it provided more critical analysis than I anticipated. Not only does the book have personal anecdotes that illustrate the issues affecting women around the word, it includes both successes and failures and a healthy amount of skepticism about outsider "assistance." Recommendations include the need to include men in solutions, which is vital to long term human success.

Women and men alike should read this book. Women because it shows the strength in us we always knew we had. Men because it supports the fact that, behind every successful man is a good woman. The strength and character of these amazing women is something that we should all consider. In this economy and record numbers of unemployment, we should take a page from these stories or survival and be thankful that we only have that to contend with. Although it's an extremely difficult situation for families, once you read what these women have endured, and survived, you will never again complain about your life. I know it's helped me and I intend on having my 17 year old daughter also read it.
