Crossroads is a fascinating collection of fifteen essays, written by accomplished Ugandan women; that shine a spotlight on different aspects of their culture. These amazing women share their stories of hardship and challenges, as well as how they live and survive in Uganda’s male-dominant society. I found each story compelling, thought-provoking but also very disturbing. All of the essays have a thread of oppression that runs through them, yet each one of them is unique and powerful.
Reading this book has opened my eyes to the severity of women’s suffering in Uganda. It has also rekindled my appreciation for the freedom that I experience every day in the United States.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
