Description

“This collection is quite the rollercoaster: it made me cry with sadness – and with joy. I salute the courage of the women who have shared the pain of sexual harassment in verse that is lyrical, poignant and powerful. And I am also grateful to those who have shared their more hopeful experience in the poems that conclude this brilliant anthology.  They have managed to find resolution and peace – as will readers of this outstanding collection.”
Rachel Kelly, author of ‘Black Rainbow: How words can heal – my journey through depression’ and mental health campaigner. 

 

A brand new collection of largely new work, that rose up directly out of the collective rage from the #MeToo campaign on social media around the world at the end of 2017.

These poems are painful, angry, often difficult to bear, but the result of these voices singing together is one that is beautiful, full of sisterhood, strength, and recovery.

 

Enough tears. Enough silence. It was all of us but we
never knew. Sisters, take my hands, we can say it together:
me too
                      me too
                                             me too.

Sarah Doyle
