An anthology of poems and prints from nine brave women, the result of the Building Equality Book Project, a collaboration between Edinburgh Women’s Aid, Shakti Women’s Aid and the Scottish Poetry Library.
“Building Equality is a project conceived by Edinburgh Women’s Aid and Shakti Women’s Aid to support women whose learning and career paths had been disrupted by domestic abuse, to move forward with their lives. I can’t think of a more fitting way for those who took part in Building Equality to illustrate their journey than through their own words and images , brought together in this beautiful book” – Linda Rodgers, CEO, Edinburgh Women’s Aid.
“Women who get support from Shakti are often ostracised by their families and communities and live in extreme isolation. The Building Equality Book Project has given a platform to break the isolation, to empower and build confidence and connections… The book represents the journey of women to heal, express and inspire” – Anila Mirza, Shakti Women’s AID.
Poems and images from: Jennifer Lowrie, Mellogie Spowart, Shah Begum, Sultana Khanam, Rose Xu, Grace Brownlie, Mildred Odhiambo, Annie McCreight and Tilly.
Poetry workshops facilitated by Hannah Lavery, Nadine Aisha Jassat and Jenny Lindsay. Printmaking workshops facilitated by Leena Nammari.
