Quick hit: Liberian feminist writings

// 11 May 2010

Feminist poet Korto Williams is guest editor of a Women’s Issue of Liberian online journal Sea Breeze.

Check it out for a wide selection of non-fiction and fiction, poetry and art, perhaps starting off with the editor’s letter, including (among other things) some thoughts about Liberia’s president Ellen Sirleaf, who Williams describes as a “woman leader without feminist grounding”.

Our writers present a demand for a progressive shift from pain and hopelessness to the rise of the indomitable nature of the enigma called a Liberian woman. With our brothers who joined the labor, we present a collective commitment to improve the position and condition of Liberian women.
