My one-true love is “Self-Help” books, and I mean it! And when I got the chance to review Rise In Pursuit of Empowerment, I was thrilled; as soon as I read the title of the book, I was confident that this is the book I have been waiting for a long time to read.
Not saying out of exaggeration, but I find this book very relatable. This book features 25 outstanding women, who fought against all odds to empower themselves, as well as other women! And out of all these 25, my personal favourites are Star 18, 19, 20 and 25.
This book will let you fall in love with yourselves, you will understand why education is so important for women, and how an Empowered Women can Empower other Women! Blood, sweat, tears, grief, poverty, hard work and persistence are what it takes to truly rise to one’s greatness, and ‘Rise In Pursuit of Empowerment’ will have you feeling “I am one of those ladies, I can do this too!”

KNOW ABOUT THE AUTHOR
An outstanding poem by Nasreen Variyawawhich summarizes this book-
Rise for the heart that was torn
Rise for the war that you fought
Rise for those that let you down
Rise ‘cos you didn’t drown, Rise!
Rise because it is you who bled
Rise because of the tears you shed
Rise ‘cos you’re a beacon of hope
Rise ‘cos you’re the light that glows, Rise!
Rise ‘cos you loved them so
Rise ‘cos they didn’t know
Rise ‘cos you didn’t lose
Rise ‘cos you weren’t a snooze, Rise!
Rise for the integrity you learnt
Rise ‘cos life left you burnt
Rise for the roads that were rough
Rise ‘cos you proved you were tough, Rise!
Rise ‘cos of the stories you tell
Rise ‘cos of the lessons you spell
Rise ‘cos you’re the icon of strength
Rise ‘cos you refused to bend, Rise!
Rise for the road ahead
Rise ‘cos you’re alive, not dead
Rise for the goals that are bigger
Rise for the desire to be better, Rise!
Rise ‘cos your role is vital
Rise ‘cos you’re teaching survival
Rise for the path you took
Rise for your new book, Rise!
Rise ‘cos you worked so hard
Rise ‘cos you hold the trump-card
Rise as you continue to thrive
Rise ‘cos you do more than survive, Rise!
Rise for the talent that you have
Rise for the ship that you drive
Rise for the doors you now open
Rise for the path that you’ve chosen, Rise!
Rise for daring to dream
Rise for the vision you’ve weaved
Rise for daring to try
For reaching new heights, Rise!
