Dr. Sam Collins has always challenged authority. When she was just six years old, her mum took her to buy a pair of rain boots and suggested the very practical blue colour…Sam chose the bright red ones. They were her rebel-boots, and she became brave and powerful whenever she wore them.
For every woman who has been told she’s too difficult, too soft, or too afraid to break the rules. Rebellious offers 16 powerful, autobiographical stories by women who refused to be told what to do, who broke the rules, and aspired to fulfil their personal roles to make a difference for themselves, their communities, and the world.
While the stories of the women of Rebellious vary widely by circumstance, from setting up a school for girls in Pakistan, to escaping from a Kuwaiti trafficking scheme, to sailing solo around the globe, to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with their kids —all of these change-making women have one thing in common: they rebelled and found the key to success.
Every story shows how bringing the quality of rebellion to everything you do can make the world a better, safer place. Not only for yourself or other women and girls, but for everyone everywhere on the planet.
