Stories of 20 Super-Women by a superwoman herself is a reader’s delight. The tale of these excellent women, who rose from scratch to be the biggest sharks in the market, can spring the sapling of motivation in all of us.
While we seek inspiration from Sheryl Sandberg, Ursula Burns, Mary Barra, there are these 20 hidden gems who broke the shackles of stereotype and created a path of their own. Somewhere or the other, they did touch our lives but we were oblivious to it. Mostly, all of us, have used Ziwame, Happy Hand, GrabHouse, Imagenie, etc but none was aware of the actual force which created these ventures and made our lives easier.
Super Women has introduced these fantastic ladies and their struggles to the world. It makes the reader believe that nothing is impossible and with determined focus and motive to bring affirmative change one can touch the sky.
However, what makes the book extraordinary is that it restores faith in humanity. A high edge fashion diva leaving it all to help acid attack victims, top earning management student providing dost to those in need, females working to create nature friendly products, and an entrepreneur determined to promote art are the lessons which must be preached.
As a reader, I would have loved to read more extracts by each person and would have been interested in reading about their journey so far in a little in detail. Despite it, the author has summarizes each chapter well. If any day in life demotivation creeps in, one can simply pick up ‘Super Women’, sit by the window with a cup of coffee and just swim across the marvelous journey of these ladies and get inspired. More power to women!
