Martina, what is the main message of the book? That women have the power to pursue opportunity?

Hi Adam! The authors help us see that the key to economic progress lies in unleashing women's potential (especially in developing countries) and that the "greatest unexploited economic resource is the female half of the population". It showcases that each of us can help if we do our part and tells the stories of people who have done just that to help. It is not an easy read by any means and it makes you angry, happy, sad and very inspired at the same time.
