“Women, wipe away your tears and fears. For even if Culture is here to stay It is changing for the better You have been … daughters So that they do not have to undergo the pains that you’ve endured for so long in your hearts…” This is a compilation of writings by Namibian women. Poetry and fiction gave the women who contributed to this book the freedom to critically explore those aspects of Namibian cultures that oppress women. The common themes that thread throughout the writings include the oppressive discourses and practices in our cultures, rape and abuse of women and girls, women loving women and the celebration of courageous women’s lives. It is hoped that these writings “will hit home straight into the heart of the Namibian people.”
