On March 16 at 6:15pm, Rashmii Bell will be at our Milton store to launch 'My Walk to Equality', a powerful collection of essays, stories and poems from Papua New Guinean women.

This anthology celebrates the contribution of women to Papua New Guinean society. It also sets out some of the problems and issues confronting those women in their daily lives. These issues are set out in an eclectic mix of poetry, essays and short stories. It also challenges the myths and stereotypes often associated with the drive to reduce inequalities in Papua New Guinea. This anthology is also an opportunity for Papua New Guineans to recognise and appreciate the women of our nation. Women are active in many fields in Papua New Guinea, occasionally in leadership roles. Papua New Guinean women are doctors and nurses, business leaders, environmental activists, and politicians. Other women in more traditional roles form the backbone of Papua New Guinean society. All of them need to be celebrated.

These women are diligently working to advance their country and remedy the wrongs they encounter, even though the task often seems overwhelming. This anthology draws attention to and suggests approaches to the serious challenges Papua New Guinea must address to become the nation it wants to be and its people need.
