About 100 Women 100 Stories Countless studies have proven that girls and young women are negatively affected when they cannot see positive role models. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote, this book offers hope to all girls and young women in a world that has yet to address the unfairness that still characterizes too many lives. 100 Women 100 Stories features the inspirational narrative of a few to empower all women with accounts of courage, achievement, sacrifice and compassion.
Women breaking the glass ceiling in business, politics, and both public and private sectors. Women going above and beyond their call of duty, everyday heroes, positive role models in our communities, cancer survivors, fundraisers, and self employed women entrepreneurs. Instead of gender equality, there remain entrenched attitudes and even institutional discrimination. Step by step, one by one, amazing women have shown how change can be achieved with determination and raw talent.
Whilst carrying burdens of family responsibility and denied opportunities, the stories captured on these pages demonstrate how bravery and single-minded tenacity can overcome all barriers. We all need to create a future where celebrating anniversaries of women achieving equality becomes redundant. We already have the capacity for positive and enabling change. That future should be now, and it is the responsibility of us all, women and men alike, to make it so.
