The last chapter in this curated collection that salutes silent superwomen is about Tina. She is from Bikaner. The adolescent girl’s tribulations could be a carbon copy of lives led by millions of young Indian girls across the country, and in other parts of the world. This book is a small but important salute to her and every girl keen to earn an education.

Dare to Learn is a 25-story tribute about brave young girls who swam against the tide, defied ‘rules’ and took a leap of faith in a tough-as-nails world. The book has an introduction by Malala Yousafzai and is supported by the Malala Fund. Apart from India, you will be introduced to gutsy go-getters from Pakistan, Nigeria, Brazil, Morocco, Syria, United States, United Kingdom, Uganda, Venezuela and Canada. 

There are enough ballsy adventures that will open the eyes of readers to struggles and strife that young women, in particular, have to face when it comes to having access to the basic right to education. So, there’s Nibras, a Yazidi refugee who stood up to the ISIS after her family had to flee Iraq; Aisha from Nigeria’s chronicle reveals how she was separated from her family because of the Boko Haram, and there is Mungdi Hasda from Assam, India, who dreams of building her own school so others like her can have it easier on their path towards a good education. Take your pick; you are bound to latch on to a life lesson or two from one of these pocket-sized dynamos.
