  • A Force Such as the World Has Never Known: Women Creating Change is a powerful and inspiring collection of narratives from women from all around the globe. These are stories of compassion and bravery, empowered by the vision of a better world for all life. They emphasize the need to empower the feminine and assure gender balance and human rights for all. This accumulation of women's stories reveals the role of women in creating needed changes in areas of health and nutrition, supporting efforts toward sustainable environments, promoting political and social rights, protecting women from the travesties of war and rape and promoting religious diversity and better conditions for all beings. This anthology offers an introduction to women's movements in parts of the world where access to this kind of information is often restricted, i.e., women's grassroots activism in communist societies such as Russia and China, woman's activism within spiritual traditions such as Islam and Buddhism, as well as a variety of forms of activism that women may not have previously considered such as dance and the preparation of traditional foods
