***We regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled due to the the developing COVID-19 outbreak situation. The event will be postponed to a later date TBA. We apologise for the inconvenience***.

Join the writers and artists of Yes, We Still Drink Coffee. Stories of Women Human Rights Defenders for the launch of the collection and readings of the pieces.

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.

Event in English.

Free admission, booking recommended.
