“The Stories We Tell: Re-imagining Human Relations” by Cathy Higgins is an exploration and critique of patriarchy through the medium of story. And the book is being launched at a special event.

The book was produced as part of the Liberation from Patriarchy for Gender Justice Project, which operated through the Junction Derry Londonderry. A copy of the book will be given to those who attend.

The Stories We Tell explores patriarchy. This book illustrates how patriarchy continues to shape cultural traditions and human relations in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and further afield, impacting all areas of life.

It juxtaposes personal life-stories shared by women and men living in Derry-Londonderry, Strabane and Inishowen with critical reflections on literary works, including biblical texts, to illustrate the damage wrought by patriarchy.

This project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE 1V Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
