Publisher's Summary

Do you ever get the feeling that girls have it less easy than boys? Have you been told to behave 'like a girl’? That you should learn to cook and be nice and keep your legs crossed?  

Well, here are the stories of 56 women who broke the rules to forge new paths for themselves and others.  

Adventurous and ambitious, they fought battles and legal cases. They won elections and matches. They climbed mountains and mastered science. Best of all, they never stopped chasing their dreams.  

Hear about them. Talk about them. Get inspired.  

And go change the world!

Light read for almost everyone

I really liked the concept of showcasing the stories of so many Indian women who have suffered, struggled and achieved so much in their lives and some of them are continuously working to improve the quality of human lives in our country. This book is a really light read good for night time or travel time. It has motivational stories which will be engaging for almost every age group.

Kids should read such books

All the kids, no matter which gender, should definitely read such books. This will tell them that hardships and challenges are part of life and successful people are successful because they overcome those challenges. They would also understand from the beginning to respect gender choice, to not make fun of any disease and will know when someone says 'NO' than it's no, and forcing yourself on anyone is harassment or rape ...
