Reader Bundle: When We Are Bold: Women Who Turn Our Upsidedown World Right & Hardwood Etched Bookmark

When We Are Bold: Women Who Turn Our Upsidedown World Right is a collection of 28 short profiles of women who boldly work for change, by the women writers, thinkers and doers they inspire. This unique collection will bring you up-close and personal to famous women from around the world—including Jane Goodall, Nawal El Saadawi, Gloria Steinem and Wangari Maathai—as well as to women who should be famous. These stories, and the women who tell them are proof that ordinary women do extraordinary things.

Open Democracy 50.50 wrote: "The women profiled in these essays, are “extraordinary”. But at the root of that word is “ordinary”. Both the women writing and the women who inspire them are just like women you know. They are your mother, your sisters, your aunts; women in every community across this planet doing the hard, sometimes dangerous, and often lonely, work of challenging the status quo and responding to violence and injustice in its many forms."
