The Power of Women
The Power of Women tells Dr. Mukwege’s story of becoming a gynecological surgeon and global women’s rights advocate by paying tribute to all of the women who inspired him and shaped his path.
In this riveting and moving biography, Dr. Denis Mukwege reflects on his life and the powerful women who shaped it. From his mother, whose own mother died giving birth to her; to the very first survivors of sexual violence that he treated at Panzi Hospital, Dr. Mukewge illustrates how we can all learn from the power and resilience of women to heal our world. The Power of Women explores how corruption, violence and rape as a weapon of war are inextricably linked, and how the global community has a responsibility to take action and demand accountability.
