Shobha Rao discusses her novel, Girls Burn Brighter. Girls Burn Brighter is about two young women, Poornima and Savitha, who work as weavers and live in a rural village in India. Their struggle to live--and be treated as full human beings, their fight to survive in the face of centuries-old patriarchy and modern-day enslavement, propels them on a journey that spans the globe. “Shobha Rao writes cleanly and eloquently about women who, without their brightness, might have been left to die in their beds. She writes them into life, into existence, into the light of day.” ―Los Angeles Times
