Stories for South Asian Super Girls
Through the inspirational stories of 50 famous and under-celebrated women from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, this publication celebrates the accomplished lives of these South Asian women. With illustrious entertainers (Meera Syal, Jameela Jamil, Mindy Kaling), pioneering business leaders (Indra Nooyi, Anjali Sud, Ruchi Sanghvi) and a host of other, equally remarkable yet less well known, figures (including the British Muslim spy, Noor Inayat Khan, and fearless activist, Jayaben Desai), Stories for South Asian Supergirls seeks to redress the imbalance for young girls of color by empowering them to break new ground for themselves and to inspire others in the process.
Illustrated with striking portraits by ten international South Asian female artists, this is a book for all ages.
Author Raj Kaur Khaira, based in London, has had a lifelong passion for gender equality that led her to founding the Pink Ladoo Project in 2015. This innovative initiative, which encourages the equal treatment of new born girls in South Asian families, has attracted tens of thousands of followers in communities across the UK, Canada, the US and Australia. It has rapidly become one of the most prominent feminist movements for South Asian women globally, and propelled Khaira to becoming an influential and credible thought-leader.
