A journey through different times and geographies of humanity, with the hand of intense, powerful, entirely beautiful women, able to upset pain in hope; to resist and transform; to change paradigms of being, of knowledge, of work. Twenty-two stories inspired by reality and illustrated with mamushkas as symbols of life that springs from femininity and its strength. A perfect book to give to a woman you admire.
