Women Empowered is a collection of thirty portraits and personal stories about women in developing countries who have broken through the barriers of convention and oppression to improve their own well-being and the well-being of their communities.
The photographs and stories shed light on gender issues worldwide. Their struggles and triumphs speak to the universal themes of courage, empowerment and human rights.
"A deeply inspirational work. Phil Borges has brought us face to face with heroes 'remote and mostly unknown women' on the edge of a slow but steady transformation, bringing social and economic justice to women and girls worldwide." -Isabelle Allende
