Blurb about the book:
SHE- Screw Silence! by Reecha Agarwal Goyal is a delightful collection of micro tales on women, by a woman. The simple but tactfully put words throw light on the crucial subjects concerning a woman – her fight for asserting her identity, her struggle against the rigid mindset of the society, her willful ignorance toward anything that pulls her back, her grit and strength in becoming and achieving what she aspires for.
“Have you heard the whispers? She woke up different today. She smiles like she is hiding a secret. She holds her head high like she is wearing an invisible crown. The air around her is charged with confidence, strength, and courage. Have you heard the whispers? She woke up different today. Yet it feels she has been like this always. Maybe it’s the story that has changed.”
