I’m pleased to be included in the creation of this very fine anthology. Please consider adding it to your collection.

INDIE BLU(E)

We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art is the brainchild of Kindra M. Austin, Candice Louisa Daquin, Rachel Finch, and Christine E. Ray. The four indie writers and survivors felt compelled to do something after the strongly triggering Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings. Ultimately, they decided to advocate, educate, and resist through art.

They opened submissions for only two weeks to women and men around the world. The response from writers and artists was overwhelming: the final anthology includes 166 pieces of writing and art from 95 contributors around the globe.

      1. All Power to the brave resistance, my respected sister!

        We shall not pull down the barricades.

        We shall not allow divisiveness to infect us.

        We shall not turn our heads and remain silent.

        We shall always speak out.

        We shall always be there for each other.

        We shall overcome with the sheer force of our worldwide united stand that will make the misogynists and molesters and abusers be exposed and hauled into justice systems that MUST have new laws incorporated into them to send a clear message to the abusers – you WILL NOT get away. The tide has turned and you will be held accountable for your obscene actions.

        We STAND together ✊✊✊

          1. ever so humbled.

            there is an old slogan from the 1980s in the struggle against Apartheid …

            “NOW that you have touched the women, you have struck a rock. And you will be crushed”

            A powerful slogan that appeared on posters at every anti-apartheid rally – so the fire of resistance still burns bright and we WILL assure that it does so
