Someone once said, “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.” Notion Press, India’s leading self-publishing platform, is proud to present The Godmothers, a collection of inspiring stories of women who transformed lives, by Smruti Shanbhag.
A Godmother is a feminine force in your life that takes the place of a mother. She uplifts her Goddaughter to accomplish her dreams, goals and hopes in life. She embodies the spirit of inspiration, support and encouragement. Anyone can be a Godmother – a friend, a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a colleague; she can even be you.
The Godmothers is a selection of inspiring short stories about women, and their godmothers. Every story has two key protagonists – the Godmother and her Goddaughter. These are tales of women who stood up, spoke out, struggled through, and soared high with the support of other women who held their hand through their darkest times. Each story vividly portrays how the Godmother supports her Goddaughter to overcome a particular hurdle in her life.
While there are plenty of wonderful books to inspire women, The Godmothers is an essential and entertaining read as it touches upon a variety of women’s issues such as female foeticide, domestic violence, sexual harassment, corporate growth challenges, and many others, through simple, yet effective short stories. Through The Godmothers, author Smruti Shanbhag aims to provoke women to selflessly support other women around them. The book is a long stride in the right direction to motivate women to take their own steps, towards accomplishing gender justice and women’s empowerment.
Author Smruti Shanbhag was born and raised in India. For the past twelve years, she has been living and working in France with her supportive husband and her beloved daughter. Shanbhag is a fearless feminist and writes stories, articles, and other perspectives on gender inequality and women’s issues on prominent online and offline platforms.
