Okay, this is the practical one. Cross-cultural encounters and self-discovery from a wide array of women are interwoven with detailed advice on matters such as how to deal with sexual harassment, stay healthy, be safe, and avoid theft. Well written and organized for easy accessibility, A Journey of One’s Own is both useful and inspiring.
