In this book Nelson shares the stories of world-changing women, as well as the story of how Vital Voices was founded. For 15 years, Vital Voices has brought together women who want to enable others to become change agents in their governments, advocates for social justice, and supporters of democracy. They equip women with management and business development skills to expand their enterprises and create jobs in their communities. The book features interviews with global leaders, such as Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia, and Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Prize-winning Burmese pro-democracy leader, as well as business leaders and draws on the work of the Vital Voices, the organization founded by Hillary Clinton in 1997 as a government initiative that transformed into a leading non-profit, which enables a network of 10,000 emerging women leaders in politics, human rights, and economic development in 127 countries.
This illustrated book features one hundred women all over the world, whose leadership changed the course of human history. It includes biographies of Manal Al-Sharif, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai and Jacinda Ardern.
