“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny
Amidst all the noise about violence against women is this short, powerful reminder that violence, and change, begins at home.
Father hits mother,
Mother goes to kitchen to cook.
Hits the doll mockingly, plays again.
First circle of wrong lessons,
“Violence is okay.”
