I Am Woman!by Pamela Allen (Editor), John H. McGlynn
Indonesian author Julia Suryakusuma reminds us that "literature is ultimately about life," a sentiment echoed by fellow countryman Seno Gumira Ajidarma when he wrote, "While journalism speaks with facts, literature speaks with the truth." The truths found in the fourteen stories included in this collection derive from the historical, political, social, and cultural circumstances that circumscribe the lives of women in contemporary Indonesia and the ways in which they manage to find new spaces for themselves in those circumstances. While their victories are not always grand, we can hear these women roar as we read their stories. Published in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of Jurnal Perempuan, Indonesia's leading magazine on feminist issues, I Am Woman! contains 14 stories by 13 authors.
