About this item

Poetry. Women's Studies. 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, the first-ever anthology of international poetry specifically addressing the oppression and empowerment of women, includes 249 poems by poets from dozens of countries – from Brazil to Bangladesh, from New Zealand to Nigeria – many of them among 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 important 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.
