Synopsis: Mark Tuschman is a man on a quest. For the past decade, he has journeyed across much of the developing world documenting the travails and triumphs of women living in very difficult circumstances. On a daily basis, millions of these women face crippling poverty, sexual violence, serious health problems for themselves and their children, and often a total denial of even their most basic human rights. In this extraordinary photo expose, Tuschman documents it all, along with the efforts by many international organizations, aid groups, and doctors and nurses to help these women and girls cope, heal, stand up for themselves and become all they can be. This is reality in the raw, but as Tuschman shows us, these women have an almost unbelievable strength and resilience, and theirs are faces of incomparable dignity and courage. The book comes with endorsements from major figures in the world of women’s health and human rights.

From the Back Cover: "Faces of Courage is a photo essay of staggering importance. Tuschman has traveled the world to bring back portraits of girls and women struggling against great odds to make something of their lives. His riveting photos open up a window into the hearts and souls of women and girls fighting violence, poor health, oppression, and lack of opportunity. This book will become a part of you and will encourage you in your efforts to make a difference in the world."
 
- Ruth W. Messinger
President of the American Jewish World Service
 
 
"Mark Tuschman frames his subjects with great dignity. His photography pleads with the world to understand how providing proper maternal-health and childcare services reduces hunger and malnutrition, and empowers women and their families. His photographs in Faces of Courage speak to me of hope."
 
- Musimbi Kanyoro
President and CEO of the Global Fund for Women
 
 
"A tribute to the resiliency of women everywhere. A call to action for all of us in the human race to claim and accept nothing less than autonomy over our own lives and bodies, and an affirmation of the rights of all women around the world to expect exactly that."
 
- Pat Mitchell
Board Member of VDAY, the One Billion Rising campaign
Editorial Director of TED Women
 
 
"Mark Tuschman's photography in Faces of Courage is sensitive, vivid, and compelling - qualities that are critical for conveying the depth and nuances of the fields of development, human rights, and economic justice. It is not an exaggeration to say that, in his work, the notion of a picture speaking a thousand words is more than a cliché; it is a fact."
 
- Kavita N. Ramdas
Former President of the Global Fund for Women
Southeast Asia Director of the Ford Foundation
