Veils, Halos & Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women by Charles Fishman (Editor), Smita Sahay (Editor)

Paperback – January 4, 2016 Publisher ‏ : ‎ Kasva Press LLC Print length : ‎ 520 pages

Description: All over the world, girls and women are victims of violence, oppression, and discrimination. No country, no community, no religious or ethnic group is immune. Too often, women’s voices are stifled, ignored, or trivialized — and as a result, other victims of abuse feel alone and unsupported.

Veils, Halos & Shackles is the first-ever anthology of international poetry specifically addressing the oppression and empowerment of women. The book includes more than 250 extraordinary poems from every continent, contributed by some of the world’s most accomplished living poets. In addition to extraordinary poems, Veils, Halos & Shackles includes testimony by the poets explaining what moved them to address this subject in their work. This volume is an essential and timely contribution to the cause of women’s empowerment and freedom, speaking to a global audience and giving a voice to the millions whose outcries have been silenced.
