Everyday Revolution By Amrita Purkayastha – Review
Book Review of Everyday Revolution – Finding Clarity, Conviction, And Joy With Feminism Penned By Amrita Purkayastha
These days loud voices are being raised in favor of feminism across every nook and corner of India. Despite that, a key percentage of women across the country, find themselves bound by the invisible shackles of deep-rooted patriarchy.
To break free, women must re-evaluate their lives and live them with greater clarity, conviction, and joy, to bring about a revolution. That is exactly what Amrita Purkayastha’s book Everyday Revolution tries to teach.
Premise – Everyday Revolution
The book is a collection of stories, anecdotes, and data collected by the author through her interactions with 100 different women. It covers five aspects of a woman’s life, including childhood, marriage, motherhood, beauty, and work to provide a different perspective on feminism. The book makes it clear that no matter how strong or successful a woman is, still expected to be submissive and fulfill the social responsibilities that got imposed on her centuries ago.
Who Should Read It – Everyday Revolution
The book is must read for people seeking a realistic insight into feminism in modern India. The book is also recommended for people who want to understand how the behavior of society towards women has remained largely unchanged despite the seeming “empowerment of the females”. Overall, it is a thought-provoking book that can be enjoyed by any mature reader.
Writing Style – Everyday Revolution
The author has written the book in a simple and easy-to-understand language to ensure that the readers get the message. There is also a writing prompt provided at the end of each chapter that enables readers to pen their thoughts about what they have just read.
The cover page design is colorful and cheerful and perfectly reflects the theme of the book.
Final Verdict: Everyday Revolution
This is a good book for readers seeking a realistic take on feminism and I give it a rating of 4.5/5.
