First of all, this book is phenomenal and I could not put it down. This book is like a terrible car crash. You want to look away, but you can't. The stories described are heart breaking and stomach turning. But the ultimate feelings of hope and progress that the authors clearly express in their writing was what made me want to keep reading. I've been discussing this book with everyone I've met and have developed a deep passion for the empowerment of women across the world. This book opened my eyes and my heart to things I didn't know we're happening. This book changes you and the ways you see the world.
