Womankind is a tribute to inspiring women leaders and activists who are striving to effect real change in the daily lives of their people. 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.
