S1 E11. Woman and Those Changing the World: Asha Dahya, Today's Wonder Women

In this episode, I talk with Asha Dahya about her book, Today’s Wonder Women.

Not all superheroes wear capes! Many of them are everyday women challenging the status quo with love, determination, vision and grit. In Asha’s book, a compilation of the stories of 50 female identifying people, you’ll meet the everyday superheroes who are changing the world. They’ve identified a problem and taken it upon themselves to do something about it, dismantling any barriers that stand in their way. It’s an inspiring read. 

Some topics of discussion include:

  1. Stories of female-identifying heroes who have defied death, flouted cultural norms, and risen above poverty to become CEOs, entrepreneurs, activists, role models, media moguls, and movement creators
  2. The “fairytale conditioning” that teaches girls to wait for Prince Charming to save them
  3. Learning to define what strength and success look like for ourselves
  4. The important of female representation in the arts, media and leadership
  5. How we can start to show up as our true, authentic selves and become our own superheroes
