This Is How We Come Back Stronger: Feminist Writers on Turning Crisis into Change

This Is How We Come Back Stronger: Feminist Writers on Turning Crisis into Change Review

In the spring of 2020, a rapidly spreading global pandemic changed the contemporary world. COVID-19 exposed dangerous fault lines in countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, which had long enjoyed the illusion that they were capable of handling large-scale crises like this. The virus has brought to the fore institutional failures concerning public health, unemployment, and government stability, and exacerbated conditions for vulnerable and marginalized groups. Racial disparity, domestic abuse, food insecurity, and social welfare are reconsidered in the wake of a startling new reality: lockdown and severe economic precarity.

In essays, short fiction, poetry, and more, writers respond to the personal and the political in the time of pandemic. Marking the one-year anniversary of lockdown in the US and the UK, these pieces consider where we go from here—and remind us that, despite it all, we are not alone.

This Is How We Come Back Stronger is an essential collection for our times, featuring contributions from Glory Edim, Fatima Bhutto, Layla Saad, Juliet Jacques, Kate Mosse, Michelle Tea, Lisa Taddeo, Akasha Gloria Hull, Amelia Abraham, Virgie Tovar, and more.

Ten percent of every book sold will be donated to the Third Wave Fund to support youth-led gender justice activism.
