Yes, We Still Drink Coffee! Stories of Woman Human Rights Defenders

Current Affairs

Published by Fighting Words and Front Line Defenders, this collection tells the stories of women human rights defenders from Egypt, Kuwait, Palestine, Tunisia, Turkey, Somalia and Sudan.

These incredible women have shared their powerful stories with writers Laura Cassidy, Catherine Dunne, Hilary Fannin, Lia Mills, Azra Naseem, Sheila O'Flanagan and Melatu Uche Okorie. The publication also includes artwork by Rosa Devine, Zehra Dogan, Niamh Flanagan and Ezrena Marwan.

‘Reading these remarkable essays is a jolt to the conscience. The women interviewed for this collection have chosen activism over apathy. They live with threats and fear, and confront them with courage. They are committed to highlighting injustices, campaigning for change, often at great personal risk.' Monica McInerney, Foreword.
