This collection seemed like the perfect blend between Strong Is the New Pretty by Kate T. Parker and Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York. So the wait to get approved for this ARC was nearly excruciating with me checking my emails every day for a week. But I'm glad to say that it lived up to the...

This was so lovely. It's really nice hearing stories from women all across the world. I would have liked the text to be a bit longer - some pictures didn't have any information about the woman, and I found I wanted to know more about them, Humans of New York style! - but it's a really lovely dive...

“I would love to see your book. But I don’t know if I will be still alive when it will be published!”
I have to admit this made me lose some tears when I read the book.
I’m speechless! It’s a very beautiful, gorgeous and amazing book! It makes me proud to be a woman!
It’s the first book that I’ve...
