Women Healing Women: A Model of Hope for Oppressed Women Everywhere

Women Healing Women Women Healing Women Hohm Press

Hohm Press, 2009

 

Internationally recognized teachers and trainers for gender empowerment, Keepin and Brix tell about the work in Pune, India to overcome the oppression of women there and of saving their lives at "Maher," a place of refuge headed by a Roman Catholic sister for abused and battered women and their children.

The first-person stories of what they endured and how they survived and recovered are powerful.  The authors then focus on the broader social meaning of responding to the plight of women who suffer all over the world and offer suggestions for those who wish to establish this kind of work elsewhere.  A compelling book on an overlooked but worlwide crisis.
