IT WASN'T TRADITION by a. intisar turner
When Okra, a young butterfly, decides to take flight, she is met with opposition because she lives in a world where girl butterflies are not allowed to fly. It Wasn't Tradition is a story that is full of inspiration and humor, as it brings light to some of the challenges one may face when trying to break a long held, but not necessarily good tradition.

Gender Equality is everyone's issue. Even when intentions are good, many girls often lack access to education and basic human rights. Girls are our future mothers, sisters, aunts, thinkers and innovators. Yet they are often our world's poor and illiterate. Why not celebrate all the great things about girls? And make a promise to Do Something For Girls.
