From Women to the World
Letters for a New Century
Extraordinary Women from Around
the World Share their Stories and Values
Produced and edited by Elizabeth Filippouli, the Founder of Global Thinkers Forum and Athena40, From Women to the World: Letters for a New Century is a collection of letters – each an ode to the extraordinary lives of extraordinary women.
Bringing together contributions from a global group of inspirational women – politicians, royalty, actors, writers, activists and more, the results are powerful and heartfelt messages to historical figures, famous women, family members, mentors and friends.
The collection features acclaimed Booker-prize nominated Elif Shafak writing a letter to Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand after the Christchurch attack, activist and TV presenter June Sarpong OBE addressing designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Her Royal Highness Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan of Jordan to her grandmothers, activist, journalist Mariane Pearl to an anonymous woman, and children’s nutrition author and entrepreneur Annabel Karmel MBE to her daughter Laura.
Each is based on these women’s personal histories and experiences, drawing attention to social issues such as gender equality, homelessness, war, LGBTQ activism, mental health, Covid19 and the refugee crisis.
From Women to the World is a book that shows us the power that women have not just to inspire each other, but also to motivate and reinvent our world.
