    1. James

      The world’s most oppressed people are mostly female. I’m not making this up. Kate Marshall Storm and Michele Rickett tell us that women and children make up:80% of the world’s refugees.70% of the poorest of the poor.2/3 of the world’s illiterate.4 million annual victims of human traffickers80 percent of those who have never heard of Jesus Christ. (15)Because women and girls are oppressed, focusing on bringing justice to them in their situation improves the lot of us all. Societies which [...]

      This is a book that both christians and non-christians should read. It's a great book for those who are not aware of many of the issues people face in other countries. It mainly focuses on women in countries where they have little to no rights, and how through christians God has been able to help some of those women. Many personal stories from all around the world are shared with the reader. Stories about wars devastating effect on women and their childrens lives, human trafficking, forced marri [...]

      I enjoyed reading the many stories of how girls in various countries overcame their oppression or at least endured through the pain because of the love of Christ that reached them in some way. Poverty, rape, sex trafficking, physical abuse, verbal abuse, labor trafficking, and hardships in the family are addressed.I had been wanting to read this book for some time and am really glad I finally did, as it was inspiring and very heart wrenching.

      This book tells the story of forgotten girls in various parts of the world. It is hard for us to imagine what it would be like to live as each one of this courage girls did, under the political unrest, abandonment and martyrdom they actually endure. It is not a happy book to ready you will want to step into action and rescue as many young women as you can

      SUMMARY: Think of the little girls you know: your daughter, a niece, a friend's child.Then think about this: little girls are tossed away every day.All over the world, women and girls face troubles such as starvation, displacement, illiteracy, sexual exploitation and abuse. In fact, statistics show that the world's most oppressed people are overwhelmingly female.Moved by the plight of these neglected girls, advocates Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett took a trip across continents to intervi [...]

      "If we really want to catch a glimpse of where we are headed [as a society:], we will do well to look at how we treat the most tender and vulnerable among us [children:] -- and how we allow others to treat them." (pg 10)"Why do you think we Americans are more hesitant to help the victims of man-made disasters, such as sex trafficking of children, than the victims of natural disasters, such as earthquakes or tsunamis?" (pg 152)Strom and Rickett say and prove that "educating girls is the strongest [...]

      This books is written by Michele Rickett who founded SIS (Sisters in Service), the Christian not-for-profit organization which was formed to garner research on the terrible conditions women live under in developing nations. Kay Marshall Strom was also an author of the book.While this book is written more from a Christian background, it tells essentially the same stories that can be found in the secular book "Half the Sky" by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn; the difference being that "Half the [...]

    8. Bob

      Sheryl Wu Dunn's Half the Sky broke ground in exposing both the abuses of women and the encouraging efforts, often led by women, in addressing these evils. This book is a great resource from a Christian perspective in the same vein. The authors expose the dangers of abortion and exposure, of educational inequities, of abuse, and forced marriage that face young girls in many parts of the world and the encouraging stories of how Christians have been able to help at least some facing these evils. T [...]

      I had already read some on the sexual exploitation of women and children in other countries and human trafficking, but this opened my eyes to even more abuses that women and children suffer elsewhere. It is so sad to read of how females are basically thrown away throughout the world, and while many groups are working to help women and children find a better way of life, I know they are only touching the surface of the injustice. This was a quick read and it really makes you want to act in some w [...]

      This was a very moving book and unique in it's format. It was divided into sections with short yet powerful stories that related to that section's topic of oppression- physical, spiritual, etc.What I appreciated most about the book was it took your reading a step further! At the end of each section, there was a couple of pages that gave you concrete and doable ways to get involved and start making a difference!

      I am not giving this book 5 stars because it's great literature. I am giving it this rating because the information in this book is so important. Now that I have a daughter, I suddenly care so much more about girls lives around the world. This was a tough book to read, but it gave me hope and an avenue to help. If you have a daughter, please read this book.

    12. Megan

      The book is divided into different problems that are currently happening to girls around the world. The authors spare no details and it many of the stories are shocking and terribly sad. However, there are stories of hope threaded throughout the book. Really makes me think about where I am from and how lucky I am to be treated with love and respect as a woman. Very faith/Christian based book.

    13. Kate

      Strom and Rickett do a tremendous job of personalizing a very complicated and overwhelming issue. They are empathetic without being overly sentimental and they have a very realistic understanding of the complexities of systemic oppression. They also provide practical things the reader can do to immediately get involved. Overall, a terrific introduction to the issue!

    14. Em

      Heartbreaking stories of the way girls and women are abused and exploited all over the world. These questions from one of the stories are playing on my mind. `Do our brothers and sisters know what is happening to us? Can they hear our cries? If they care, why do they not help us?`p120.

    15. Ardith

      The reality of life lived under circumstances unimagined by most of us, combined with life continuing on in spite of one's past, is an amazing testimony of faith.
