In this book, the first of its kind anywhere in the world, women leaders of Southeast Asia recount their life journeys in poignant portraits that will at once make you laugh and make you cry. Through candid interviews across the region, these women have come together with one common voice to share their stories in support of the empowerment of the Asian woman.
Powerful forces for influence and change in the countries they call home yet remaining the never-silent voices of mothers, they are the cornerstones of their families. This book is an inspiring collection of stories of hope,courage and adventure. At times they are the stories of all-out determination to survive against the odds of social oppression, war,imprisonment and even torture. They will redefine the way we look at the evolution of the daughters of Asia.
