About the Author

Whether it was floods in Mozambique or famine in Malawi, Joanna Henry's job as part of a disaster aid team in Africa began to make her feel part of a "colonizing" power, fuelled by and serving the interests of western nations. Searching for a better way, she discovered and joined the "feminist, ethical, founded on equity" work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Her profoundly felt dedication to interviewing the African grandmothers and writing this books was truly "powered by love." This is Joanna's first book. Ilana Landsberg-Lewis has spent her entire adult life engaged in the struggle for the rights of women and girls. From her early days as a human rights lawyer to her years at UNIFEM, Ilana has worked with women's groups around the world and has learned that no amount of so-called expertise can replace that of women at the frontlines of their own struggle for justice. Ilana has been the executive director of the Stephen Lewis Foundation since she founded it with her father in 2003. She has been deeply honoured and grateful to learn from the indomitable grandmothers of this remarkable movement the world over. Alexis MacDonald is the director of external relations for the Stephen Lewis Foundation and a Toronto-based photographer. Michele Landsberg began her career with The Globe and Mail in the 1960s and moved to Chatelaine Magazine in the 70s, under the editorship of Doris Anderson, before moving to the Star. She continues her work as an activist, and is a regular reviewer of children's books on CBC Radio. Michele lives in Toronto with her husband, Stephen Lewis.
