Discover the world through the eyes and experiences of inspiring and empowered women

The readers will discover the world of women in Myanmar in five main tourist destinations: Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake, Ngwe Saung Beach and through the mosaic of rich ethnic diversity. The book will celebrate the life experiences of courageous women, politicians, including those who gave up their freedom for the promotion of peace and democracy, innovative artisans and artists, women entrepreneurs in different businesses, mothers, researchers and teachers. Women will tell their stories. Their life journeys have empowered them and their stories will inspire other women in Myanmar and worldwide. This approach connects visitors and local women, in an original, evocative and fresh way.
