Women and children make up 80% of the world’s refugee population, yet their voices are seldom heard.
In Crossing The Border, women writers from Somalia, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Kurdistan, Turkey, Northen Cyprus, Bosnia, Kosova and the Congo tell their stories. All the women are refugees or are living in exile.
In addition to the stories and memories, Crossing The Border includes articles on women’s lives and on women’s writing in each of these countries.
Those publications are available from selected bookshops and direct from
