INVINCIBLE WOMEN
Conversations with 21 Inspiring and Successful American Immigrants
By Bilha Chesner Fish, M.D.

Women carry the weight of change on their shoulders, we create life, we problem solve, we persevere, we collaborate, we communicate, we make change in the world. I’m inspired by the journeys of these incredible women and excited for everyone to read Invincible Women, be inspired, and continue to share their stories. —Donna Karan, Fashion Designer, Creator of DKNY

Immerse yourself in the first-person success stories told by American writers, artists, philanthropists, scientists, business executives, and chefs–all immigrants who struggled against racism, sexism, and abuse to become influencers and role models in their adopted country. Compiled at a time when immigrants living the United States or seeking to come here are labeled unworthy and undesirable, these inspiring accounts are particularly relevant and hopeful. In Invincible Women: Conversations with 21 Inspiring and Successful American Immigrants by Israeli-American entrepreneur and doctor Bilha Chesner Fish, you’ll discover how these fearless women contribute to American culture and society. (Hybrid Global Published, May 14, 2020, $19.99/Softcover: 978-1-948181-73-0, $4.99/eBook: 978-1-948181-75-4)

In the book you’ll learn how acclaimed author Isabel Allende uses her writing to explore cultural memories and oppressive political themes that shaped her early life. Olga Murray saved young women in Nepal from enslavement and continues to help build schools and hospitals for needy children and their families. Wafaa El-Sadr, an infectious disease specialist, has developed family- and community-based programs to help people living with AIDS. Doris Schechter fled the Holocaust and now manages a Kosher restaurant, writes cookbooks, and produces documentaries. Jacqueline Murekatete narrowly survived the Rwandan genocide and now helps others face their survival guilt and re-establish trusting relationships. Get ready to meet all of the invincible women originally from Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Chile, Egypt, Haiti, India, Iran, Israel, Rwanda, Serbia, Pakistan, South Korea, and Transylvania.
