She Achieves is the sixth book of short stories published by 16 women authors of Indian origin worldwide. Hailing from different professional backgrounds, the SHE project’s primary goal is to provide a creative platform for women’s voices and their reflections on daily lives. None of the authors come from a ‘purely literary’ background, and yet, as scientists, bankers, academics, engineers, managers and homemakers, they all have a story to share.

The books in the SHE series revolve around a specific theme or genre. In the past, the themes have included stories woven around women’s voices (She Speaks 2019), Indian festivals (She Celebrates 2020; relaunched in 2021), stories of women belonging to marginal groups (She Shines (2022), mystery and nostalgia (She Seeks 2023). Flash fiction was the genre of choice in (She Reflects 2021). She Achieves is a varied collection of short stories and flash fiction addressing women and work.

The short stories in this book offer a glimpse into how women have navigated their everyday lives and work. They appear in distinct roles, sometimes as trailblazers and at other times as innovators and facilitators. They are vulnerable, resilient, fragile, resourceful, sensitive, and determined individuals. Sheila, Durga and Aparajita (I Am, Immortal Durga, Aparajita) are pioneers who dared to break the social mould at a time when very few women entered the professional fields, paving the way for future generations. In sharp contrast for the Daughter of the Desert, Reyan, and Rani (The Artist, Rani, Tears of Sand), work is about survival in a world of relentless challenges rather than choice. Rini, Sonali, Bella, Memsahib, Darshana and Meera (The Urban Cocoon, Crossroads, The Woman in the Shadows, Memsahib, Victory and A Dream Deferred) are courageous enough to reinvent and reimagine their career paths later in life in response to monumental odds and changing circum-stances. For women in pursuit of professional excellence, it boils down to hard choices about motherhood. Is it possible to balance both? The corporate lady, Nayantara and Tina (Renata, The Constellational Odds and All in a Day) have quite different answers to this question. Amrit and Minisha (The Decision and Firedance) are determined to fight discrimination in the workplace by acts of revolt that shatter the status quo. The collective strength of women is revealed as Uma, Durga and Maneka (The Giving Well) fight prejudice in their village to realise their dream of becoming entrepreneurs. Ranya (It Takes a Village) a single parent in a foreign land, leans on another woman when she finds herself in a predicament. To what extent should the work women do define and shape their identity? For Olefia (The Women We Leave Behind) it’s not a simple answer whereas for Mrs. Mehta (A Fitting Farewell) it surprisingly is.
