WRITING BY WOMEN ON THE FUTURE OF EUROPE
In collaboration with Hay Festival and Wom@rts.
Introduced by Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project.
A being from another time and planet visits Earth, and takes human form for one year, as a European...
A young woman’s tyrannical father has arranged her marriage to an influential suitor, but a mythical bull from her dreams comes to her rescue...
A group of students in Tallinn’s Freedom Square imagine where the rise in right-wing fascism may have taken Europe by 2050...
With so many flare-ups of nationalism and isolationism in recent years, there is a sense that Europe needs to be fixed, or, at the very least, profoundly reconfigured; whether it is to address the grievances of those feeling disenfranchised from it, or to improve social cohesion, or even continue to exist as a democratic transnational entity.
Bringing together 28 acclaimed women writers, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs from across Europe, this powerful and timely anthology looks at an ever-changing Europe from a variety of different perspectives and offers hope and insight into how we might begin to rebuild.
