“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Echoes yearning freedom from the invisible shackles of patriarchy.

I long to be free-

From the look of

Accusation and decree,

If not to love and laugh.

I long to be free-

Of opinions, choices and

Compulsion to agree,

Which makes me disheartened.

I long to be free-

From all the expectations,

That pushes me to be

Someone destroy my foundations.

I long to be free-

Of all the myths in

The world that makes thee,

Superior to your women.

I long to be free-

To be independent enough,

To be no one and to see,

If we can do stuff.
