This is POWA's 7th anthology of poems, short stories and personal essays. The anthology embodies the meaning of sisterhood, of relationships in which girls and women give and receive friendship, love, and support. This safe, secure environment, increased by their bond, is neither threatening nor imposing; a sister is there to give encouragement and unconditional love. The theme of Sisterhood grew from a personal essay published in last year's anthology, Love & Revolution. All the contributions warmly embrace this theme. The writers defined what sisterhood meant for them, and incorporated it into their stories and poems. Their understanding of sisterhood deepened through reflection. In this way, writing also becomes an act of liberation.
