The stories about these fifty-six women are simply but engagingly told along with strikingly beautiful illustrations. To me these stories aren’t just stories, they are career options for my children. So then, here is a book with 56 career options to go through with your child to help her chase her dreams and change the world.
The women in this book have risen above their challenges, fought against prejudices and gender stereotypes and forged ahead full throttle to become activists, lawyers, politicians, scientists, monarchs, and mountaineers.
India is trying to raise its girls differently today and at a crucial time like this, stories from Like a Girl are the right bed-time material for our little ones. While every girl, big or small will feel inspired and empowered through the stories of women like Sunita Narain, Dipa Karmakar, Teesta Setalvad, Chand Bibi, Savitribai Phule, Razia Sultan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Barkha Dutt, Tessy Thomas and Mithali Raj, to name a few, it will teach our boys to respect and admire women and expect nothing less from them. And just for that, I cannot recommend this book enough! More power to the writer Aparna Jain for taking the initiative of writing about these tremendously inspiring women and throwing in gorgeous illustrations to make it easy on the eye.
Buy it, read it, talk about it with your children and their friends and insist that all their school libraries have it.
I have two copies, one of which I intend to give to an inclusive school. This is a book that has to be shared.
I am numb to see Barkha Dutt being represented as a hero, when there's evidence on how many instances she has compromised national security on television network. A hero?
Jay Lalitha may have been hugely popular but even though she was acquitted of the corruption charges, her co-accused were later found guilty. Jay Laitha's case could not be further pursued on account of her death, making her acquittal itself questionable. A hero?
It is proven that Teesta Setalvad used fabricated evidence against the case on 2002 Godhra riots. Her NGO is accused of fraud and fund embezzlement. A hero?
Medha Patkar is the one who opposed the death penalty for the terrorists involved in the Mumbai attack that killed 300+ innocent civilians. A hero?
The research is shallow and several portraits have been added as if they ran out of time. The book tries to 'hit hard while the iron is hot' with a popular topic, but fails to do justice to the actual cause of Indian women or the nation itself. The authors seems to have used her connections to further a group agenda to brain wash little girls.
If you truly wish to empower girls it is important to have a balanced view, unadulterated by political agenda, present undiluted facts.
