We live in an era of significant political shifts; of threats to women's reproductive rights, of global and local attacks on Muslim women's rights, of hate on the streets. In the face of these currents of misogyny, racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia, how do women resist the tides which seek to sweep them away? 

Join poet and activist Nadine Aisha to consider the role that women' s voices, particularly women' s poetry as protest, play in providing resistance against the current. Through poetry and storytelling, Aisha will explore and illustrate the power of women' s voices to resist and create change. 

Nadine Aisha (Nadine Aisha Jassat) is a poet, writer and creative practitioner. Her debut poetry pamphlet, Still, was published by Appletree Writers Press in 2016, and explores women?
