collide, who gets to decide the ‘appropriate’ way to fight bias and how to
break the pattern of inequality that is generational.
To celebrate International Women’s Day Katherine, Nisa and Antonia look at some books from perspectives that haven’t always been heard. Books discussed include:
Stories of love – romantic love – have been entertaining people for thousands of years. Shared through the written medium, stories within the romance genre have been one of the biggest publishing phenomena of the last century.
