9789810728182: Sushi and Tapas: Bite-size Personal Stories from Women Around the World

Welcome to the wonderful world of Sushi and Tapas. Sample a feast of writing from around the world. From China to America, Europe to Africa, 25 women write, delighting and touching you with their real-life experiences. What is it like to be a top student in India entering into an arranged marriage in Canada? How does it feel to be a young black woman in a boardroom filled with white men in post-aparteid South Africa? How does A woman deal with attending a London red carpet opening of a film while recovering from the shock of sexual assault? And let's talk about being fat, being free-spirited, being in a long-distance relationship, being a mother. Being a modern woman. Edited by Neo Gim Huay, a Singaporean, and Pepukaye Bardouille, a Dominican, Sushi and Tapas presents a wide range of extraordinary experiences that will leave you laughing and crying for more.

About the Author:

Pepukaye Bardouille was born in Dominica, and spent her formative years in Zambia and England. She studied engineering in the US and France, and received a doctorate in energy and environmental systems from Lund University in Sweden. Giving in to wanderlust, Pep has worked across all continents as a management consultant and with international development agencies on corporate strategy, access to energy, and sustainability issues. Her weekend interests are eclectic, and include photography, jewelry design and the sweet science . But she is happiest simply connecting with people and enjoys gathering tales of random adventure from places near and far, with her trusted camera in tow.

Neo Gim Huay was born and raised in Singapore. She studied engineering in Cambridge University and did her MBA in Stanford University, spending close to a decade in public service before becoming an international management consultant. Neo has worked in Lagos where she was both challenged and enriched by the dynamism and complexities of Nigeria living with never a dull moment. Neo currently lives in Singapore. Eternally grateful for the opportunities that life has provided this girl next door , the number one item on her bucket list is to give back to life multiple times more than what life has given her.

Review:

The twenty-five stories in this book draw from the experiences of women in many countries. They range from Sweden to South Africa, Japan to the United States, and Britain to China. Across diverse contexts, women are seen to share many experiences. In the way, this book builds bonds between us all. It is transformative in encouraging us to support the empowerment of women everywhere --Helen Clark, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme, Chair, United Nations Development Group and former Prime Minister of New Zealand 1999-2008

This book celebrates the tenacity and unhindered spirit found in women around the world today. You will be inspired by many of the stories within --Chan Heng Chee, Singapore's Ambassador-at-large
