About the book
Power: a word that’s as dissociated from women in real life as it’s seen to be embodied by them through ideas of Shakti. Reduced to mere tropes in Indian mythology – the innocent Kanya, seductive Apsara, warrior-like Veera, the noble Rani, nurturing Maa, the wise Rishika – the images of feminine mystique are reservoirs of power.
Changing the conversation from how these stereotypes shackle women to how they can enable them, Nirupama Subramanian uses the wisdom of archetypes to provide practical advice to women to claim the powers they need to achieve their goals.
In a world where biases precede their entry into every space, Powerful helps modern women understand their sources of power and embark on a path of transformation and growth.
