Bloomsbury presents From Women to the World edited by Elizabeth H. Filippouli, read by Tara Jaffar, Dami Olukoya and Jennifer Kim.
Acclaimed writer Elif Shafak writes a letter to Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand after the Christchurch attack. Actress Yasmine AlMassri pens a poem about war for her mother. Activist and TV presenter June Sarpong addresses designer Diane Von Furstenberg.
These are a few of the moving and insightful letters that make up From Women to the World, an audiobook by journalist, author and executive Elizabeth Filippouli, which brings together letters from a global group of accomplished women - politicians, royalty, actors, writers, activists and more – every one addressed to a woman who means something to each of them. The results are extraordinary, heartfelt letters to historical figures, mentors, family members or inspiring ordinary people. Each is based on these women's personal histories and experiences, drawing attention to social issues such as homelessness, war, LGBT activism, mental health care or the plight of international refugees.
From Women to the World is more than a simple collection of letters - it is an audiobook that shows a new model of leadership based on emotional intelligence and demonstrates how we have the wisdom to inspire, motivate and reinvent our world.
"Trailblazing female politicians, royals, actors and writers from around the world write letters to historical figures, famous women, family members and mentors, sharing their heartfelt personal experiences while drawing attention to pressing social issues that fuel their activism... Through their letters they reflect on their lives, careers, relationships, successes and challenges, and although many highlight the various trials and tribulations this generation of Arab women has had to endure and overcome, the overall message is one of activism and optimism for the future." (The National)
"In this collection of writings from women across the world, letter-writing is put to work to declare women's solidarity, strength and resolve... A book to delve into when in need of wise counsel." (Morning Star)
