Women I Can’t Forget – By Winnie Williams
Winnie Williams has had the opportunity to see gender and socioeconomic status, in combination with extremely diverse cultures—and her heart has been torn by the lives of the women. In Women I Can’t Forget, she combines descriptions of the beauty of the places she saw and the fascination of the cultures with insight into the forces which shape the lives of people—ecological, economic, and social.
Williams goes further by looking at what hope there is and what progress is being made in the lives of women. She knew that where there was hope, there could be dreams. Where there were dreams fulfilled, there could be change for the better. It was the conditions under which these very special women worked and struggled for a brighter tomorrow that interested Winnie enough to write this book so that she could also share her experiences with other women of the world.
These fascinating eye-witness accounts make one see and feel what life is like for women who are locked into an existence of subservience in the male-dominated societies of many developing countries. These profiles of unforgettable women provide a stirring reminder of the power of the human spirit to rise above significant cultural and economic barriers. Williams creates mental images vivid enough to ensure that you, too, can’t forget these women
