Stories for South Asian Super Girls Contrary to its misleading title, this is in fact a book of illustrated biographies of women from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Khaira's work with her charity Pink Ladoo to change historical South Asian gender bias uncovered the woeful under-representation of successful women in the mainstream media and spurred her on to redress the imbalance by writing this book. Ranging from the thirteenth century to the present day, this is a comprehensive compendium including women from all walks of life: mountaineers, chefs, scientists, film makers, monarchs,and tech gurus to name but a few! Each biography has a full page illustration by one of ten illustrators whose biographies are in turn listed at the end of the book with details of who has inspired them and advice that they would give to aspiring 'South Asian Super Girls''.
