March is all about women, and the wonderful contributions they’ve made throughout history. We thought we’d take a moment to share some of our titles that celebrate those women who have made a great impact throughout their lives, as well as some recent works from women who continue to make great strides in the world of literature.
Last Boat to Yokohama: The Life and Legacy of Beate Sirota Gordon – Nassrine Azimi and Michel Wasserman
In 1946, a remarkable woman secretly helped create Japan’s new constitution, contributing a revolutionary article, which stated: “All of the people are equal under the law and there shall be no discrimination in political, economic or social relations because of race, creed, sex, social status or family origin.”
We’ve also published Last Boat in Persian, to help inspire women around the globe, available here.
