A woman is told to come home before dark, and definitely before her husband is home. They are often told to speak softly, and to put family obligations before work at all cost. It has never been easy to break out of those gender norms but women have never stopped trying.

This special issue of The Week brings you some of the most inspiring stories of women around us.
