This is a simple yet powerful guide to women's issues around the world. Meroff tells the inspiring true adventures of nine ordinary women, both married and single, who are making a difference in such places as Tajikistan, India, Egypt, and Lebanon. 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. This book not only raises awareness of global issues but points out simple ways in which we can help turn the tide for women worldwide.
