Words Matter The “Language” that girls need to speak

Author Name: Jacintha Jayachandran and Shreya Krishnan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Letters & Essays | Other Details

Words matter. Some more than others.

Have you ever felt that some words colour your world without giving you a choice? In colours that create a context that don’t give you the freedom to exist or express on your terms. 

That ends now. This book is a compilation of forty words that help the reader to choose their vocabulary in a way that allows them to redefine how human beings are treated. With equality. And with respect. 

Our sisters, wives and mothers have suffered consequences of a language that has been fed into our minds since we were born. Those in relationships with them have suffered repercussions of the narratives these words have created. Let us make sure the same doesn’t happen to our daughters.

Essential reading for boys, girls and every human being who believes in human dignity.

‘This book should be the bible for women and a guideline for men’ 

- Dr.Jija M.HariSingh 

Former Director General of Police, 


‘This book breaks down often complex topics to its core by using illustrations and poems. It is so powerful, you can't help but feel the impact of these words deep within. Every woman needs this book to nurture the little girl inside of her.  This book is for every person who would like to understand true equality.’
