Battling Injustice is an authentic record of women’s cultural history, told through the lives of some of the most remarkable women since modernity.
Aung San Suu Kyi, Malala Yousafzai, Tawakkol Karman, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, Shirin Ebadi – these women and others like them shaped the history of their peoples through their fight against political persecution, social deprivation and gender discrimination.
