Summary "Hanh is an HIV-positive widow in Vietnam. Nada, a survivor of the Bosnian war. And Madame Urbain works in the slums of Bamako, Mali. Three very different lives. Three vastly different worlds. But they share something in common: Power. These extraordinary women are each overcoming barriers to rise up and claim a voice in their societies. Through their strength and the ability to empower others, Hanh, Nada and Madame Urbain are sparking remarkable changes. Fighting AIDS. Educating girls. Rebuilding communities."--Container.
