She Is Stories of women advancing the sustainable development goals in India

Author Name: ElsaMarie D'Silva | Format: Paperback | Genre : Philosophy | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #33 in Philosophy

2021 is the beginning of the ‘decade of action’ to realise the Sustainable
Development Goals by 2030. It is imperative that every single person
understands the goals, becomes familiar with them and takes individual
and collective action to realise them if we want to live a quality life.

SDG 5 in particular talks about Gender Equality which in our view is central
to the realisation of the SDGs. Unfortunately in India, women in leadership
positions are not visible and the numbers do not stack up. We have less
than 10% representation of women in the State Legislative Assembly, 14%
in Parliament, about 24% in the formal labour force which is declining year
on year. If you cannot see her, you cannot be her.

This book aims to showcase the journeys of women leaders in their
respective fields and also in the realisation of the 17 SDGs through their
work. We have scientists, police women, judges and business entrepreneurs
who have shared their failures and successes. Through their unique
perspectives they have shared on how despite one’s backgrounds one can
achieve one’s goals, overcome socio-cultural barriers and contribute to the
collective good.
