Overall, I definitely find the bios... fascinating They each have a story to tell, what influenced them, what drives them. Every girl needs positive role models, strong women to look up to. This accomplishes that. Now I ask, how many young women have ACCESS to the book?

Now if I may be so bold, here are my answers...
What really matters to you?
That my actions don’t cause a negative impact. I like to make people happy and laugh. And feed them.
What brings you happiness?
Doing something random that makes someone else happy (random acts of kindness), happiness in people around me, feeding people, learning new things, making things, reading, travelling and exploring.
What do you regard as being the lowest depth of misery?
Being trapped. Trapped in toxic relationships, situations or in your own head.
What would you change if you could?
I would make everyone see that all people have value and give everyone self worth. If you can see that, how can you go around causing harm, take aw some body’s dignity or any if the other disgusting things that we keep doing to each other. I hope that would also end the horrendous fashion of leisure plastic surgery. Our beauty is in our differences! And give people a thirst for knowledge. We have a lot of work to do don’t we?
Which single word do you most identify with?
Trying. I am very trying and I always do keep on trying.
These are views from women of all walks of life, and it is not a book dominated by the artists and intellectuals. Some, like Nomvula Shikakhane, have a passionate and moving personal story to tell, and they make no pretence of being ideologues at all. All Nomvula wants to do each day, is to walk into the kitchen and begin work as the chef.
Embeth Davidz tells us (men and women) that physical scars are of no concern. They do not diminish us as humans; they serve only to remind us of our personal experience and learning. Some of the women featured show deep wounds the cause of which they can neither forget nor forgive; others show understanding and forgiveness that make them more human than those who have brought them wrong.
This is a book for bonding women's solidarity, and reshaping men's views of the woman in today's world; views that will raise a clearer understanding of the being as human.
