The Girl Who Fought for Freedom and Other Stories of Courage
South Sudan is a country filled with real-life stories of women and girls who hope, who dream, who fight to change the world around them – but often, these stories are not told. The Girl Who Fought for Freedom and Other Stories of Courage is one of the many efforts to bring to the surface these stories so that they will be told and retold over and over. So that they will not be forgotten, so that the world will be constantly reminded that South Sudanese women and girls are unstoppable when it comes to shaping a better society. A society that sees them as equal to men and boys. This book is just the beginning. It is a fraction of the diverse culture of South Sudan – and these stories are a glimpse of the real-life tales of countless of women heroes in the country.
This book is for all the women and girls of South Sudan who continue to dream, to love, to fight and to challenge what is not right. This book is for you.
