Synopsis

Children's Book of the Week - The Times







`There is someone here for every girl and boy ... an inspiring book.' ALEX O'CONNELL, THE TIMES







`The most beautiful, bodacious, ball-busting book ever! ... needs to be in every library, house, and school ever built.' ONJALI RAUF, author of THE BOY AT THE BACK OF THE CLASS







`Heartwarmingly full of the power, resilience and ingenuity of South Asian women.' BOOK TRUST







`One of the most beautiful and visually stimulating books I have seen for a long time.' MORNING STAR







Through the inspirational 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.







Bringing together 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 colour 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 - the perfect gift that will be treasured by parents as much as their children will enjoy reading them.

RAJ KAUR KHAIRA's lifelong passion for gender equality 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 Raj to becoming an influential and credible thought-leader. Raj lives in London. Raj will be donating 100% of author proceeds from the sales of this book to charities supporting women and children.
