"...Nancy is that rare person who, through sheer persistence and a blend of practical and visionary ideas, continues to see the good that can be done in this world. Through her travels, she’s discovered that much of that good comes from telling stories. In fact, for women who have experienced the horrors of war, the oppression of religious intolerance, and a poverty of choices in everything from the clothes they’re allowed to wear to the children they’re expected to bear, sharing personal stories is one of the best ways to heal.
That’s what Womankind represents: a collective healing, not just for the women Nancy writes about, but for everyone who reads these insightful glimpses into the universal concerns women face. This is a book that incites thought, examination, and change. It is a celebration of women, and a measure of how far we need to go to achieve a greater sense of our selves." - Debra Landwehr Engle, author of Grace From the Garden: Saving the World One Garden at a Time.
