Everyone fights their own unique battles in life, winning or losing to some degree. But some fight bigger fights than others -- like the ravages of war, violence and poverty -- and still manage to thrive and fend for themselves. Our guest is Zainab Salbi, Founder of Women for Women International
Zainab Salbi is a humanitarian, women's rights activist, founder and former CEO of Women for Women International and author of If You Knew Me You Would Care. This book is an illustrated journey of women in developing countries who have overcome tragedy and adversity to find hope and empowerment.
