Latest News > Rekha Kalindi – Women Planet Review
There’s an enthusiastic review of Rekha Kalindi’s book The Strength to Say No: One Girl’s Fight Against Forced Marriage over on the website Women Planet. Appropriately enough for a review of a book on the rights of women and girls, the website describes itslef as ‘an open space where any and every woman can express, explore and share their ideas and opinions.’
‘Every child of her age, young people, parents and every village should read this.’
In the review, Bhakti Patel describes how Rekha Kalindi came to appear as a poster girl for UNICEF’s campaign against child marriage and also went on to become a recipient of India’s National Bravery Award. She describes the courageous Kalindi as ‘an inspiration to millions’ and recommends that ‘every child of her age, young people, parents and every village should read this.’ She says that this true story is ‘no doubt a heart-melting one, but may also give us a courage to stand for someone trapped in similar situation.’
