Publisher's Summary

These candid interviews with women from Albania, Brazil, Israel, Mali, South Africa, and other countries cover every aspect of women's lives in our increasingly crowded world. Each woman in this program shares her feelings on family, children, money, love, sex, marriage, and other topics. Faith D'Aluisio, a former TV news producer, and Peter Menzel, author of Material World: A Global Family Portrait, have created a truly stunning program that puts a human face on international issues and gives a voice to the half of humanity that often remains silent.

short stories of women

I'm not sure I figured out what the overall point was of this collection, however, I very much enjoyed the individual stories of women from around the world. Sort of an inventory of the condition of women world-wide and gives you something to feel grateful about with your own situation. Good for commuting as there were natural short breaks.
