Forgotten Girls: Stories of Hope and Courage

9780830837311_p0_v2_s260x420

This book is written by Kay Marshall Strom and Michelle Rickett and is about the plight of women throughout the world.  It covers a lot of different topics such as poverty, inequality, trafficking, war, and injustice.  Each chapter takes place in a different country and is packed full of stories that will tear at the heart strings and call you to action.

What I like about this book is that each chapter includes many different ideas in how people can get involved and make a difference in small and big ways and in a variety of different levels of commitment.  For those who cannot give much time or money, there are many other ideas.  At the end of the book there is also an extensive section dedicated to follow-up reading ideas and organizations that are actively taking part in the fight against injustice.

This book is a Christian book and has encouraging stories as well about how people have spread the Gospel and maintained wholly dedicated lives in very challenging circumstances.

This book was worth reading.  On a scale of 1-10, I would probably rate it a 6.5.  On Kindle, it costs $9.99.
