With insight and passion Michelle Tooley calls for the voiceless to find their voices and be heard. She focuses on injustices suffered by women in Guatemala, but pleads also for a justice encompassing all who suffer -- women, men, children, or the earth itself.

Voices of the Voiceless tells the stories of such women as Myrna Mack Chang, murdered by Guatemalan security forces, and Rigoberta Menchu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Tooley interprets this agony and drama through theological reflection and perspectives on the Political history of Guatemala.
