A wake-up call to the crises facing women around the world, told through the exciting stories of nine courageous people and hard-hitting 'Vital Statistics' files.
This tells the inspiring true adventures of nine 'ordinary' women who are making a difference in such places as Tajikistan, India and Lebanon. We hear about Kathryn, a deaf woman who built a ministry to the deaf in Israel; 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, a country from which she had had a dangerous escape as a teenager.
Fact files between stories highlight global female abuse, such as child brides, sex trafficking, girl soldiers and 'honour' killings. But it does not end there, 'True Grit' goes on to point out simple ways for all of us to help turn the tide for women worldwide.About the Author:
