The Strength of A Woman
Publisher: The America Star Books
ISBN: 9781634485067

This book is a better shelter from the sheer trials and challenges of daily life in the lives of women around the world. It's also an ideal medium of inspiration in the life of every girl-child. It radiates the realities of our modern world in the gender sphere and acknowledges the efforts and value of every woman in any growing society. It's a grand source of motivation that any woman can fall back on when she gets entangled in a web of gender imbalance, humiliation, underestimation, disconnection, mistreatment and gender harassment. It's meant to help you understand yourself, figure out who you are and give you a reason to become who you want to be in life as a woman.

You may order this inspiration book through Amazon Star Books | Giving authors a voice in America the old fashioned way or on Amazon, Ingram, Barnes and Noble.
