Wow Women || Her Story

This book “Her Story: Is Not Always A Story” looks to be an amazing read that opens up discussion about the injustices women face in the workplace and in other areas. I wanted to share an overview of it here, as written on the blog “A Shade of Pen.”


A Shade Of Pen

I have stopped reading the daily newspapers. Do you know why? I cringe when I see the endless cases that pile the newspapers these days.

A girl of 14, gang raped.

Old woman, alone in house; looted and killed.

      I appreciate that you stand up for women’s rights and took the time to comment here.
