Standing On Their Shoulders

by Edwina Gateley & Sandra Mattucci


Price: £12.99
Publisher:Orbis Books from Alban Books
Published:February 2012
An inspiring portrayal of some of the most remarkable women of all time. Edwina Gateley and Sandra Mattucci’s portrayal includes Hildegard of Bingen and Aung San Suu Kyi; Brigid of Kildare and the heroic Rachel Corrie who gave her life for the people of Palestine in 2003. There is a model here for every woman or man seeking inspiration in their own lives. The brief account of each woman is complemented by poetry which celebrates her life and achievement. These are women who made the world a better place – they are sources of hope for each one of us.
