Young Women in Leadership Dialogue, Mendaki Club


Resilience. Courage. Compassion. Commitment. These are values that women have embodied in the pursuit of excellence and progress. Challenging norms and breaking barriers, the 20 young women from the Malay/Muslim community featured in this book have expressed leadership over not only their own lives, but also those of others. Read about their inspiring journeys in this commemorative volume conceptualised and written by a team of 50 youth volunteers from Mendaki Club.

“This book profiles 20 stories of courage and resilience. It captures the compelling voices and realities of young women from the Malay/Muslim community determined to overcome hardships to achieve their dreams and aspirations on their own terms.” 
Dr Noeleen Heyzer, United Nations Under-Secretary-General (2007-2015)
