Her Hands: Craftswomen Changing the World
is a book of color photographs and intimate text about the courage
and spirit of women -all poor, many illiterate-from around the world,
who have taken charge of their lives by creating and selling traditional
crafts. Women from South Africa to India, Bali to Peru, from twelve countries
in all, talk about their diverse lives and surprisingly universal aspirations.
They share joy and optimism, plus the determination to provide better
nutrition and education for their children. Including an eloquent, provocative
Foreword by Alice Walker, In Her Hands celebrates a global women's
movement that promises a better life for families and communities, and,
over time, our world.
