THE BOOK OF GUTSY WOMEN: FAVOURITE STORIES OF COURAGE AND RESILIENCE

550.00

Throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us.

Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historian Mary Beard used wit to open doors that were once closed, and Wangari Maathai, who sparked a movement to plant trees, understood the power of role modelling. Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai looked fear in the face and persevered. Nearly every single one of these women was fiercely optimistic-they had faith that their actions could make a difference. And they were right.

To us, they are all gutsy women – leaders with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done.
