If You Knew Me You Would Care

Paperback – August 17, 2006

Featuring Forewords by Meryl Streep, Annie Lennox, Ashley Judd, and Geena Davis.

“”If You Knew Me You Would Care” presents stunning photographs of women living where violence, poverty, and conflict are a given. Luckily, they have survived to tell their tale.

Paired with their personal stories, the photographs of smiling faces become truly powerful and inspiring documents of life beyond crisis. “

Zainab Salbi and Rennio Maifredi take us beyond the tragedy of war and the sigma of victimhood to reach the unique story of each women.
The interviews and images captured in this book are a powerful reminder of the enduring dignity of these women and to the importance of Women for Women International's work on their behalf.
