What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
On International Women's Day in lockdown last year I started to read more about incredible women I had never heard of which inspired me to start researching into more women from around the world. 120 women later the book came together. However, I decided to cut down to 70 women (watch out part 2). Was so inspired to hear stories of women that never made our history books. Have learnt so much and I hope others do to. If you really believe in something then anything is achievable.
Women’s contribution in different fields of knowledge has historically remained unexplored, primarily due to the extensive gender prejudice which has plagued the world since time immemorial.
In exploring the influential impact of women, the most awe-inspiring feature is the audacity with which women embarked on their journey. Despite the traditional norms and religious-cultural practices which impeded women’s potential to materialize and mature to its fullest, women had been leaving their mark in multiple ways, thus becoming pioneers of distinctive inventors, forerunners of various movements, and harbingers of productivity and creativity. In addition to the patriarchal society, childhood experiences and financial obstacles also hindered women’s way to progress, but the unwavering attitude of women helped them pave their way cutting across all the edges and making their mark into this world.
The aim of this book is to put women at the center of inquiry in a number of areas, which have gained advancement due to the tireless efforts of women, defying patriarchal norms and pursuing their ambi- tious goals against all odds. Each chapter of this book focuses on a particular area where women have made immense contributions in their own way in conjunction with their personal talents. Be it travel- ling, exploration of the world, traversing the skies, women’s rights activism, inciting political or other social movements, prolific literary artists, stepping into leadership roles or participating in military service, or pioneering inventors and discoveries, women have been ex- celling everywhere. Another striking feature revealed from the study of women’s unique inputs in variegated fields is that such phenomenal women date back to the Middle Ages, but their roles were masqueraded in the process of knowledge production, which has always been biased. Thus, the increasing participation of women is not a feature of the contemporary world; rather, women have been making influential strides for a long time.
Another purpose of this book, in addition to bringing the contributions of women to the spotlight, is to compile the genius of women, their struggles and efforts in pursuing their goals, their determination to stand against any stiff competition, and their admiral quality of advancing in the fulfilment of their goals. The rationale to compiling all these elements in one place in the form of this book is to make it an inspirational piece, stirring the dormant capabilities of readers, providing them encouragement in furthering their target goals, and reinforcing their belief in the attainment of unpredictable and unim- aginative objectives. For this to happen, it is important to delineate the stimulating life journeys of iconic women, whose efforts and de- termination exemplify the kind of inspiration, which is much needed for people in the contemporary world.
This book provides the necessary inspiration to people of every age, belonging to any gender, irrespective of their race, creed, or color, living in any part of the world. Thus, any person in the world would be able to resonate with the women depicted in this book.
