Dilruba Z Ara is a Bengali/Swedish author who in her book "A List of Offences" shines the light on the family bullying of woman in the Indian sub continent.
“I think what inspired A LIST OF OFFENCES is that I have seen how girls are raised and treated,” explains author Dilruba Z. Ara. “In Third World countries you can see a pattern where girls always have to fight for their rights – even within the family. They are told to keep quiet: you do not talk about things that might signal you out as an unsuitable girl in your social orbit; even if you’ve been raped you hide that. In the book, Daria’s story is only a micro version of the macro thing that has been happening within families… home has been the center of repression for girls for ages.”
