Summary:

The Stories of Farida is a children’s book that presents the questions which Farida asks her mother about the various situations she experiences in her everyday life. The questions posed reveal Farida’s attempt to understand life on the one hand, and to battle the roots of gender biases on the other. Moreover, the stories encourage children to assert their right to be different and choose their own paths in life. The book is written by the She Said: Gender Sensitive Storytelling Workshop in the Women and Memory Forum. This workshop is comprised of a group of women writers who use storytelling as a means of empowering women in stories and giving them positive and effective roles. Their aim is to present women in a more realistic light and to battle the prescribed roles assigned to them in traditional storytelling
