Meet 14 female abolitionists who took extraordinary risks in their struggles to end slavery from the 18th century to the present. From Alice Seeley Harris, whose photographs of mutilated Congolese slaves galvanized a nation; to Hadijatou Mani, who successfully sued the Niger government for failing to protect her from slavery--this is an inspirational, shocking and informative account of brave women who have devoted their lives to freedom for all.
