Nao Bustamante: I have an affection for this book! It’s such a wonderful and much-needed compendium of arts and politics. These Turkish women have let me in and made me a sister, through
their words and images. You can feel the communal and
complicated love jumping off the pages.

 

Steve Kurtz: This document is a significant contribution to the development of a diverse range of feminisms and feminist organizational structures that empower women throughout the world to effectively engage in on-going local, national, and regional ethnic struggles against gender inequality and injustice. 
Sisterhood is still powerful.
