Iraqi Women of Three Generations:Challenges, Education, and Hopes for Peace

Images and Stories by Sister Martha Ann Kirk, Th.D. and Sister Patricia Madigan, Ph.D.
With Introduction and Afterword by M.A. Kirk.   
Stories of Iraqi women’s resilience, courage, and compassion have wisdom which can encourage understanding and healing across cultures and religions. Six years after the 1988 massacres of more than 180,000 people in Northern Iraq, Turkish Muslims quietly began schools to give children hope and promote peace. The teachers were inspired by Fethullah Gülen, an Islamic scholar who encourages education which  builds diversity, justice, and peace.   Read about the new book 
Sister Martha Ann and some of her research can be seen in the film LOVE IS A VERB   by the Emmy Award-winning documentary creator  Terry Spencer Hesser
