Summary
"From Africa to Asia to the Americas, women are the key to progress on ending poverty, violence, and conflict. Award-winning humanitarian and journalist Sally Armstrong shows us why empowering women and girls is the way forward, and she introduces us to the leading females who are making change happen, from Nobel Prize winners to little girls suing for justice. Uprising examines the stunning courage, tenacity, and wit these change-makers are using to alter the status quo. From mud-brick houses in Afghanistan to the forests of Congo to a shelter in northern Kenya, where 160 girls have won an historic court case against a government who did not protect them from rape, Uprising is about the final frontier for women: having control over your own body, whether in zones of conflict, in rural villages, on university campuses, or in your own kitchen. In this landmark book, Sally Armstrong brings us the voices of the women all over the world whose bravery is changing the world as we know it"--Provided by publisher
