The Sigh-Lent Screams of a Woman: An Anthology of Sighs That Lent Themselves to Healing; Essays and Poetry (Paperback)
A woman's screams are never silent Many times they go unheard or unacknowledged. She then sighs, picks herself up, and continues to move forward.
As women who have had the narrative told to us of who we ought to be and what we ought to do, in acting out these socially constructed roles, we don't recognize our own sigh-lent screams. Take a look at a time when you wanted to scream but didn't. I'm willing to bet rather than scream (what good would it do?), you just sighed; and that sigh lent itself to powerful action. This sigh is not to be ignored, pushed down, covered up, swept under the rug, or kept to oneself.
The Sigh-Lent Screams of a Woman is an anthology that presents the voices of fourteen women whose sighs lent themselves to healing. Their sighs are in the form of essays and poetry. Each voice is special, profound, and distinct. This collection offers paralleled insight into the hearts and minds of women who have silently sighed and turned those sighs into power, strength, releasing, healing, and transformation. We invite you to recall a time you sighed, picked yourself up, and got back in the race.
