“I guarantee that if you read this book, your heart will be broken—which is why you must read this book. Our hearts ought to be broken by the suffering of women and girls throughout the world. But this book does more. It tells us how to take action on their behalf.” – Lynne Hybels, author
All over the world, women and girls face starvation, displacement, illiteracy, sexual exploitation and abuse. In fact, statistics show that the world’s most oppressed are overwhelmingly female.
Moved by their plight, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett took a trip across continents to partner with ministries working to help females and to interview girls in some of the most difficult places in the world.
These pages hold those girls’ stories of deep suffering, inspiring courage, and incredible hope. They are the stories of girls who have discovered their value in God’s eyes, in the midst of cultures that have rejected them. They are the stories of rescue and redemption by God working through compassionate people – people like you.
