Description - Daughters of India by Stephen P. Huyler

Although one in every six women in the world lives in India, most of the Western world knows little about them. Daughters of India is a collection of the stories of twenty Indian women, each of whom uses creative expression as a means of empowerment. With 250 full-color illustrations, author Stephen Huyler introduces the reader to these individual Indian women and their artGCoand draws us into their colorful lives and inspiring achievements. Huyler seeks to dispel Western myths about the repression of Indian women, instead revealing their incredible strength and determination to improve their lives and those of their children. The varied and inspiring womenGCOs stories are simultaneously unique and unifying. From a woman preparing for her sonGCOs wedding to a leading female IT entrepreneur, and from Hindu to Christian to Muslim, the many female faces of India come alive to HuylerGCOs audience. A portion of the proceeds from this book will benefit the Global Fund for Women, the Self-Employed WomenGCOs Association, and Folk Arts Rajasthan, as well as other organizations that work to empower women, a full list of which appears in the back of this book.
