    One thought on “The Other Side of War: Women's Stories of Survival and Hope”

    1. Over a year ago I read Zainab Salbi's book "Between Two Worlds", that is how I became introduced to her work in Women for Women International. She instantly became my modern day hero. If there is anyone I would want to meet and have a cup of coffee with, it is Zainab Salbi. "The Other Side of War" couldn't be more appropriately titled. It is such a blessing that this organization, Women for Women, has provided a place for these women who were afraid to speak out before, can now have their voices [...]

    2. a gripping load of tales from amazing women. if you ever want to feel fortunate read this book. if you ever want to help, read this book. if you ever want to feel like you have power in your life, read this book.

    3. I think because of all the good reviews my friends gave this book I was expecting more from it. I still liked it, but I felt like the stories never got as in depth as I would like and the actual format of the book (short and wide) made it hard to hold to read.

    4. This is a coffee table book. Wish I had a coffee table to put it on. It's a compilation of short stories about women surviving(I guess that's in the title). Very inspiring.

    5. This project is so intensely beautiful. I love the photography, and the tragedy these women have endured is heartbreaking. The book is sectioned by location/country/region. There is a short historical description of the war and suffering in each country, and then several women share their stories and dreams. They write about what they have overcome, and how they discovered self-love. (Powerful stuff.) I became interested in these inspiring stories after reading Half the Sky, which moved me so de [...]

    6. I remember once when I was torn away from my family and home because of war in Iraq. We constantly lived in fear I've always felt that life have been so unfair. We paid the price of a war that was never owners. But after reading this book I realized that afterall I was so lucky. Nothing is compared to the stories of these women, neither to their strength and courage. This book is an eye opener to the real side of war Every man and woman should read it and understand that war isn't only about bat [...]

    7. After reading Zainab's "Between Two Worlds" I immediately researched her organization Women for Women International. This book captures stories and pictures of women who have survived terribly trying times and have been touched by the Women for Women International organization. The mix of images and words truly brings these women's stories to life. Along with Zainab, each and every woman is inspiring in her own way. I cannot wait until I have a steady career and am able to sponsor a woman throug [...]

    8. excellent. really, really excellent. I found this book after reading Zainab Salbi's first book: Between two worlds-escape from tyranny-living in the shadow of Sadaam. Zainab founded Women for Women International and many of the stories featured in this book were possible because of the work of this organization."Stronger women build stronger nations." "I think in today's world there is a field between the worlds of war and peace, and women are meeting there."

    9. Heartbreaking yet inspiring, this book shows how much modern wars have affected women. I love these opening lines from the book:"What is happening in Africa and elsewhere is because the men did not listen to the women, and the women did not listen to the women either, and because the people did not listen to each other and themselves, and because nobody listened to the children and the poets"Alice Walker

    10. A National Geographic book, a sobering read but one that does help show the resilience of women after horrific traumas, in Colombia, Sudan, Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Worth the read, esp. for people interested in human rights and women's issues.

    11. I can't even begin to understand the things that went on in the lives of these women. But I feel like I gained a little knowledge about the effects war has on women in these developing countries. I would like to look into the women to women organization to see if there's something I can do to help. The book was very moving for me.

    12. I loved this book. The photos were exactly what you would expect from a National Geographic book and the stories were heart felt and interesting.

    13. Simply astounding. Stunning. Gorgeous. Painful. Terrifying. Tragic. It was all of these adjectives and more. I am quite thankful to have read this book.

    14. Moving, strong, sad, hopeful, devastating, brilliant, horrible, intensely personal. I cried and smiled. Sigh. What an incredible compilation of stories.
