Over 250 poems by poets from dozens of countries—from Brazil to Bangladesh, and from New Zealand to Nigeria—among them some of the most accomplished living poets.
These diverse, impeccably crafted poems tell us that Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Ireland, India, Israel, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, the US, the UK, and dozens of other countries, are not so dissimilar where the oppression of women is concerned. Many of the contributors are survivors of rape and other crimes that affect women and girls every day, or the kin of victims and survivors. Others write out of empathy and concern, having been moved deeply by the fate of human beings who just happen to be women.
Veils, Halos & Shackles aims not only to make a statement, but to make a difference—to shock, to startle, and above all, to inspire.
