The Godmothers Stories that Inspire

Author Name: Smruti Shanbhag | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

A Godmother is a woman who takes the place of a mother and helps her Goddaughter accomplish her goals and succeed in life, by being there for her, and supporting her in the journey. Anyone can become a Godmother – a friend, a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a colleague…

The Godmothers is a selection of short stories about women, young and old, and their Godmothers. These are stories about women who help other women grow, achieve, and live a free life. Every story has two key protagonists: the Godmother and her Goddaughter. The stories describe how the Godmother supports her Goddaughter to overcome a struggle in her life. Each story talks about a different challenge, in a different context, thereby touching upon a variety of women’s issues such as female foeticide, domestic violence, sexual harassment, corporate growth challenges, and so on.

The stories aim to provoke women to selflessly support other women around them. It is an attempt to motivate women to take their own little step towards achieving gender justice and women’s empowerment. If every woman decided to support one other woman in need, we will not be far from reaching our dream of gender equality.
