Women Empowered: Inspiring Change in the Emerging World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The accomplishments of ordinary women in developing and war-ravaged countries who have broken through the barriers of oppression to make a positive difference in their communities is brilliantly told through radiant photography and riveting profiles.
