Words matter. Some more than others.
Have you ever felt that some words colour your world without giving you a choice? In colours that create a context that don’t give you the freedom to exist or express on your terms.
That ends now. This book is a compilation of forty words that help the reader to choose their vocabulary in a way that allows them to redefine how human beings are treated. With equality. And with respect.
Our sisters, wives and mothers have suffered consequences of a language that has been fed into our minds since we were born. Those in relationships with them have suffered repercussions of the narratives these words have created. Let us make sure the same doesn’t happen to our daughters.
Essential reading for boys, girls and every human being who believes in human dignity.

‘This book breaks down often complex topics to its core by using illustrations and poems. It is so powerful, you can’t help but feel the impact of these words deep within. Every woman needs this book to nurture the little girl inside of her. This book is for every person who would like to understand true equality.’

“Every book you buy, contributes to the education of the girl child,as part of the proceeds will fund the HopeWords Foundation.”
This book is a self help read of a different kind. Starting from the book title and cover to the words captured by the authors, this book was a delight to read. The book is divided into 40 different chapters focusing on important words like dream, anger, love etc. And the authors encourage to stand for ourselves and raise their voice.
The theme and concept of this book is so different. With the use of simple language and effective narration, the authors have imparted wisdom through his words. I particularly like the flow of the book. There were poems and illustrations throughout the book. I took my time with this book and read it slowly. I recommend this to everyone out there.
Also, every book you buy contributes to the education of the girl child, as part of the proceeds will fund the HopeWords Foundation.
Words matter – The language that girls need to speak gets 4.5 out of 5 stars from me.
