Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World

Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For close to ten years, two women — one armed with a camera, the other with a pencil (and later a laptop) — traveled around the world to document the inspiring work of women activists. In every corner of the globe, they found women striving — sometimes against enormous odds — to help one another and effect real change in the daily lives of their people.

Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World, is a tribute to these inspiring women leaders. Stunning duotone photographs present the many faces of courage, while moving profiles highlight the women's own words, describing the challenges and dangers they have faced as well as their impressive achievements, their relentless determination, and their resolute hope for the future. Womankind features women from more than thirty countries or five continents — some internationally famous, others little-known outside their own communities, all of them fighting in courageous and creative ways for human rights, social justice, women's equality, environmental preservation, and cultural freedom.

In a time of increasing worldwide tension, these women offer alternative models for peaceful social change, and proof of the importance of women's leadership in shaping the public discourse and bringing about a more just and sustainable world. A compelling testament to the vitality of women's work for change, Womankind is also an ideal gift for anyone who still believes in the value of speaking truth to power.

Synopsis:

A stunning portrayal of courage in both photos and text.

Synopsis:

Womankind presents an inspiring portait of heroines from more than thirty countries and five continents. In beautiful, evocative photographs and inspiring profiles these essential portraits examine the many faces of courage. From Kathe Kollwitz as Guerrilla Girl to Vandana Shiva as Bio-Activist, these are women on the front lines of making change in the world in which we live.
