She goes to tell her best friend Azra that she has now decided to be a vegetarian. But the girls have got other things on their minds than food.

How I became the woman I am now.

In her latest book, Lina Mallon writes about the female friends and other women who have affected her life. With great frankness and openness, she describes real support, unexpected opposition, friendship disappointments, the strength of Girl Power, and the dilemma in which women of all ages can find themselves: meeting the expectations of society whilst fulfilling their own dreams and desires.

Above all, Mallon emphasises the importance of women mutually supporting one another, being honest with one another, and even being able to criticise one another in a positive way so that they can grow together rather than competing with one another.
