The most inspiring chapter for me was by Dr. Hawa Abdi. Dr. Hawa opened a one room clinic in Mogadishu in 1983 that has grown to a 400-bed hospital on her land that houses 90,000 internally displaced families. I was awed by her courage to stand up to Hizbul Islam and save thousands of lives in Somalia, where the UN and international aid agencies dare not go. In the book she writes: "I believe that a true hero must care for and develop her society, and in my place, the only way to do so is from the inside out." Dr. Hawa and the other brave voices in this book deserve this recognition from the largest possible audience.
The book ends with hopeful notes for the future, but only if we continue to push for women's rights and end cruelty globally.
The pictures in the middle also bring faces to the suffering and struggle.
