In this collection of short stories by women, published by the very reputed Women’s Web, you’ll find two themes echoing. Stories about sisterhood, and stories about women’s identity. Women often stand on the shoulders of their foremothers… or even those around them. And these sisterhoods willingly and happily help them rise. For with the rising of a sister, women as a whole rise up above their situations.
The stories straddle time. While there are stories of women’s rage, stories of women’s pain, there are also stories about women helping each other, inspiring stories of women achieving against all odds, as well as stories of ordinary women. While many of these are contemporary stories, there is mythology, fantasy, and speculative fiction too.
