A wake-up call to crises facing women around the world, told through the eyes of nine courageous women. Includes hard-hitting 'Vital Statistics' files. This is a simple yet powerful guide to women's issues around the world. Deborah Meroff tells the inspiring true adventures of nine 'ordinary' wives and single women who are making a difference in such places as Tajikistan, India, Egypt, and Lebanon. We hear about Kathryn, a deaf American who built a ministry to the deaf in Israel; Tammy, who set up businesses in Nepal to help abused women and had to overcome difficulties such as the loss of her visa and former employees setting up a rival business; Pam, who lived and worked in war-racked Tajikstan, a country completely alien and unknown to Westerners; and Cindy who ended up returning as a missionary to Vietnam, a country from which she had had a dangerous escape as a teenager. Brief fact files between stories highlight global abuses of girls and women, such as female infanticide, child brides, sex trafficking, girl soldiers, female circumcision, and 'honour' killings.But this book does not stop at raising the reader's awareness, True Grit points out simple ways for us all to help turn the tide for women worldwide.… (mais)

This is a simple yet powerful guide to women’s issues around the world. Meroff tells the inspiring true adventures of nine "ordinary" women, married and single, who are making a difference in such places as Tajikistan, India, Egypt, and Lebanon. We hear about Kathryn, a deaf American who built a ministry to the deaf in Israel; Tammy, who set up businesses in Nepal to help abused women and had to overcome difficulties such as the loss of her visa and former employees setting up a rival business; Pam, who lived and worked in war-racked Tajikistan, a country completely alien and unknown to Westerners; and Cindy, who ended up returning as a missionary to Vietnam after escaping from there as a teenager.
Brief fact files between stories highlight global abuses of girls and women, such as female infanticide, child brides, sex trafficking, girl soldiers, female circumcision, and "honor" killings. But this book does not stop at raising the reader’s awareness. True Grit points out simple ways for us all to help turn the tide for women worldwide.
