Come celebrate the Montreal launch and hear first hand from this fascinating collection of personal stories from more than 50 racialized immigrant women. Women in their twenties to those in their seventies provide snapshots of their experiences of both welcome and exclusion, and paint a sobering picture of what has been - until now - a buried history.

Featuring:
- Members of the Book Project Collective Rashmi Luther and Monia Mazigh who will speak to how the anthology was created and the themes that arose from the array of different women's experiences captured
- Local Montreal contributors to the book who will speak about their own pieces
- With an introduction from and moderated by Yasmin Jiwani, professor in the Commuications Dept. at Concordia

This is a free event. All are welcome and light refreshments will be served.

This event is sponsored by The Simone de Beauvoir Institute at Concordia University. Book sales will be provided by Concordia Community Solidarity Co-op Bookstore. Resilience and Triumph is a Feminist History Society book published by Second Story Press.
