Femmes Et Ecritures Des Quatre Coins Du Monde

Malgré leurs différences ethniques et nationales, on retrouve chez ces trois femmes le même désir d'affirmer leur créativité et la même lutte solidaire pour se faire entendre et publier. Participantes: Régina Yaou (Côte d'Ivoire), Louky Bersianik (Québec), Aicha Lemsine (Algeria). Coordoné par Jeannette Savona, U. of Toronto. Voir aussi Women Writing Around the World.
