Description

Not many women in modern history can claim to have changed the world. But during her thirty years at the United Nations Population Fund, Nafis Sadik’s perseverance in supplying access to contraception cut the global birth rate in half—prompting the London Times to call her one of “the most powerful women in the world.” Written in a dramatic narrative style, her biography tells the true story of a character who defies all stereotypes—an obstetrician, a dedicated wife and mother, a Pakistani, a devout Muslim—who becomes the first female director of the U.N. Department of English and Comparative Literature
