Chasing Misery

an anthology of essays by women in humanitarian responses

Authored by Kelsey Hoppe

"What motivates any of us to do the work we do? And more importantly does that work make a difference?"

This is the question film producer and founder of, Caroline Baron, reflects on when she calls Chasing Misery an "unblinking" account of what it's like to be a woman on the front lines of global humanitarian responses. Twenty-one first person essays and 23 stunning photographs give readers a glimpse into the lives of real women who respond to emergencies-their hopes, fears, questions, challenges, frustrations as well as glimpses of the humour, beauty, and hope they find in the midst of misery.
