Written by women who have rebuilt their lives after suffering violence, rape, war, and poverty, these essays, edited by Zainab Salbi and accompanied by portraits, reveal strength and dignity amid chaos. As Meryl Streep, in one of the celebrity-penned forewords to If You Knew Me You Would Care, says, “We who turn the page and confront, in turn, each of these women, acknowledge each life, its size and importance, as somehow familiar.” (PowerHouse Books, 144 pages, $65)
