Item Details

Ashley Judd is an award-winning film and stage actor known for both box-office hits and art-house gems. Yet in 2002, she found her true calling: as a humanitarian and advocate for those suffering in neglected parts of the world. Asked why she was opting out while she was one of the highest-paid women in Hollywood, she could not provide an answer. She simply knew that after her first trip to the notorious brothels, slums, and hospices of southeast Asia, her own life depended on advocating on behalf of the vulnerable. Along the way, Ashley realized that the coping strategies she had developed to deal with her own emotional pain were no longer working. Seeking in-patient treatment, she found an expanded kit of spiritual tools that energized and advanced her feminist social justice work. Now, she describes her odyssey, as a left-behind lost child attains international prominence as a fiercely dedicated advocate.--From publisher description.
