A compelling story of thirteen 'earth angels' who found deep meening in their lives, following the call of the spirit within and creating remarkable organizations to compassionately serve others. A timely and inspiring antidote to the cynicism and hopelessness that pervade today's politics, and popular culture.

"Social Justice and the Power of Compassion" is a timely book that reveals how it is possible to help the marginalized and the traumatized so that they can reenter society as productive citizens. It also demonstrates that a caring relationship with a physician is a powerful form of healing.

This is an inspiring book, offering hope and vision. It is not about politics but how one person, and also an orgaization of women from around the world can mobilize women in impoverished regions to respond to what is now occurring on a massive scale.
