This book depicts a lot of social issues? What other book did you read which touches the same social issues?

I can't think of any off the top of my head right now but I know that there are a ton that addresses a twisted patriarchal system. It's the same kind of system that Nadia finds herself in.

There are many such books such as "I Am Malala".

There are a lot of books where social issues are discussed. :)
I, personally, like books about a deep connection between socialization and self-development, such as books by Saint-Exupery or Richard Bach.

I am deeply touched by the life of Malala and the strength she manifested despite the odds. Her passion for serving her people is inspiring.

One writer that focuses a lot on social issues is the Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Her books are internationally recognised. They include Purple Hibiscus, Americanah, The Thing Around Your Neck, Half of s Yellow Sun, and We Should All Be Feminists.

The Help definitely addresses the issue of oppression and social class level. This is a normal way of life for many people and I don't think it's rare to find other books depicting these issues. I wish there were more books that addressed these topics as eloquently as this one did.
