Author and journalist Vicki Mackenzie tells the stories of two remarkable trail blazing women, friends who both shook the world with their extraordinary endeavours. British born Freda Bedi (the subject of her latest book) was an Oxford graduate, who broke all the rules of gender, race and religion, by marrying a Sikh and then fighting alongside Gandhi. She went on to become a professor, social worker, journalist, mother of four, and lastly a pioneering Buddhist nun, who helped bring Buddhism to the West. Tenzin Palmo, subject of best selling Cave in the Snow was born Diane Perry in London’s East End before disappearing into a Himalayan cave for 12 years to devote herself to serious meditation. Her vow was to become enlightened in a female body. She emerged as one of the leading Buddhist teachers in the world today.
