Summary
Ashley Judd may be an acclaimed actress, but these days she's more likely to be found in an African refugee camp or Asian brothel than on a film set. A human rights activist for PSI/YouthAIDS, her work has put her into the battle against disease and poverty and made her an advocate of grassroots programs to improve the lives of women and children. Memories of her own painful childhood inspired Judd to reach out to those in desperate need, especially abused and abandoned girls; and she describes how her recovery from this abusive past was integrally shaped by her humanitarian work. Judd recorded her experiences both abroad and at home in more than five hundred pages of journal entries, which she has woven into a highly personal and powerful memoir about change, hope, and human transformation
Summary
Drawing on journals of the celebrity activist's visits to violence- and poverty-stricken regions on four continents, a personal account describes how her witness to basic human rights violations helped her to work through damaging issues in her own life
