In an era of gender inequality and suppression of the voices of women, books like 'Fearless: Stories of Amazing Women from Pakistan' are crucial. They highlight some well-known women crusaders and some lesser-known ones as well – bringing them up to a global platform. These women come from all walks of life – scientists, lawyers, activists and artists, amongst others. These are women who have been pioneers in their fields and pushed past forces of oppression and inspiring young women the world over.
Highlighting their voices is relevant in today's social and political climate. South-East Asia and especially countries engulfed in violence and suppression need books like this more than ever. The aim is to open up dialogues amongst those who are unaware of the work of such women and remind readers that such enigmatic women, do, exist.
The illustrations highlight these women and give readers a wholesome and enlightening experience. With the likes of Malala Yousafzai, Fatima Jinnah and Asma Jehangir filling the book, along with 47 more amazing women – this book is an eye-opener for both unaware and those who want to learn more about these amazing, often unrepresented women. Their stories are inspiring and enriching for readers.
