Product Description

Product Description

This collection features fictional stories and poems written by women from all over the world. It is a celebration of womanhood, of overcoming hard times and enjoying the good. Each story or poem, in its own way, illustrates the capacity every woman has for courage and strength, no matter what the circumstances.

The 'I Am Woman' campaign is about using our voices to help other women. To raise awareness of women across the planet who have in effect 'lost their voice' or had it taken away either through, fear, abuse, illness or war. We must speak for them until they can do it for themselves.

Proceeds from this book will be are shared equally between Women’s Aid, Breakthrough and Women for Women. No costs will be deducted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Varied contributions by amazing women 8 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This anthology features poems and stories by fourteen women writers from around the world on the subject of womanhood.

The stories and poems feature a range of subjects and each is emotive and special in its own way.

There are contributions from new writers and a special story from the wonderful Leila Aboulela.

A great cause and a great anthology.

5.0 out of 5 stars The I Am Woman Anthology - Volume 1 6 Sep 2012
By Jennifer Brookins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This anthology of short stories is written by women with determination, who give credence and support to that silent minority who have lost their voice due to physical and mental abuse, as well as those fortunate ones who found strength through adversity. There were two flash fiction shorties which I particularly enjoyed.

The first is "Amulet and Feathers," written by Leila Abovlela, fiction winner for the Scottish Book Awards and recipient of the Cain prize for African writing. Her style has a childlike straightforwardness, lending itself to the main character, a young African girl disguised as a boy and journeying to Gobir in order to avenge her father's death; at once, giving us a peek into African tribal culture not to speak of sleeping alone in the jungle darkness; smelling the "...animals hunger." In her loss and desire for revenge, she has an awakening: her father appears in a dream and advises her for the last time, speaking to her of destiny and of the futility of anger.

My second favorite in this collection of thirteen, excellent but diverse, short stories; each with a different style and voice, is Jane Risdon's, "The Debt Collector." It is a thriller that doesn't advertise its content but gradually slides into my thought thus making it impossible to put down. With each page, I wanted to know more and more about this young woman who acts as a conduit for paying off debts. She is a hit man. Excuse me, I meant to say hit woman ... better still, let's call her what she is: a killer.

For those who enjoy short stories (and please count me in), I recommend "The I Am Woman Anthology." I'm waiting for Volume 11.

I found this a little disjointed to read, but I do think it was the way the book was set out rather than the stories which on the whole I enjoyed.
