The stories in this book may appear unrelated but they are not. I have tried to use flash fiction to throw light on the lives we live as women in different spheres in the African society. We struggle with various issues but at the end of the day, the African woman is strong, bold and beautiful. The girl child must be encouraged to believe in herself and her value to society. A woman is by no means inferior, and it is time
society, and the girl child herself accepted that fact. Women have contributed to the development of every facet of our society, and they should be rightly proud of these contributions.
This book is a call to action for women and the men who love them. No woman should be ignored or taken advantage of; I am no feminist but I firmly believe in women empowerment. An empowered woman is a force that changes society for good. This book is the forerunner for the Gold River Club. We will provide help and support for women who need to uphold each other. We believe that where two or three women are gathered together, there should be a listening ear and the sound of laughter.
