Untold Resilience

Untold Resilience

We are not the first generation to live through something as seismic and all-encompassing as the coronavirus pandemic, even though it can feel right now like we are. But when it comes to the stories of the wars, financial crises and diseases that have threatened our societies in the past century, most often they are told from the male viewpoint. That's why the brilliant journalists at Future Women want to rewrite these triumphs over tragedy from the vantage point of the heroic women who survived them, too, with their own struggles at home. Quiet Resilience is a collection of remarkable true stories that invites us to discover how seemingly ordinary women from older generations - those aged 80+ today - have weathered the storms of their lives and times, and that shares the lessons we can apply in our lives today. It celebrates our adaptability, survival skills and the persistence of the female human spirit. The 18 women's stories are being beautifully told in the first person by Future Women founder and CEO, Helen McCabe, and her team of journalists which includes Jamila Rizvi (Not Just Lucky and The Motherhood), who is their Chief Content Officer. So many examples of generosity, kindness, empathy and connection shine through from these tales, bringing much-needed reassurance that we will be okay, we will make it through, the good in people will prevail. Quiet Resilience is a book filled with heart, soul and hope.
