~ a foreword by Sofia Seitchik, author & publisher.
The vivid tapestry of today's world is woven with millions of Deaf women, remarkable individuals who are a silent staple of our everyday life. In every community and every industry, there are brilliant, tenacious, and empowered Deaf women working and thriving. But there are not many places where we can share our stories: our journeys, struggles, pains, frustrations—and ultimately, successes.
The Light of Deaf Women: Inspirational Stories from Visionaries, Artists, Founders, and Entrepreneurs is aimed to motivate all kinds of people to go after their dreams, channel their own inner artist, take the leap to found an organization, or even to start their own business. Global Deaf Women created this collection to share nearly 90 stories of Deaf women with diverse identities, backgrounds, and journeys. This book was created with an all-Deaf team of photographers, editors, and graphic designers.
