Through the fascinating, empowering stories of 50 famous and under-celebrated women from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, South Asian girls will have a chance to dream about lives for themselves that radically differ from the limited narratives and stereotypes written for them by their culture, wider society and the mainstream media.
Brigng together the stories of leading entertainers (Meera Syal, Jameela Jamil, Mindy Kaling), pioneering business leaders (indra Nooyi, Anjali Sud, Ruchi Sanghvi) and a whole host of other equally remarkable but less well known figurers – from British Muslim spy Noor Inayat Khan to fearless activist Jayaben Desai – this book seeks to redress the imbalance for young girls of colour by empowering them to break new ground for themselves and inspire others along the way.
Beautifully illustrated with striking portraits by ten international South Asian female artists, this is truly a book for all ages – a gift to be treasured by parents and children alike.
