Despite living in a time when more women are speaking up and speaking out about inequality, political issues, and the realities of their day-to-day lives, many continue to be treated as whispers in the void; hidden figures in the dark; shadows on the wall. This is what moved us to launch We Are Not Shadows as the first book from Folkways Press.

When compiling this anthology, we made it our mission to select writing from women of all ages and backgrounds covering a wide range of topics – many of which we feel are both timely and necessary. In We Are Not Shadows, you will find stories, poems, and essays concerning issues of race, gender, sexuality, trauma, adversity, disability, and much more.
