Three of my favourite quotes have been featured in the That’s What She Said project run by Fabric Experiments in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

When they called for submissions of wise words from women to make into sticker packs, I simply couldn’t decide which was my favourite.

In the end I sent in three. They came from Audre Lorde, Judy Garland and Mary Shelley.

I have been massively inspired by other participants’ explanations of what different quotes mean to them. You can see for yourself on the Fabric Experiments instagram site.  

It’s thrilling to see that my choice of Audrey Lorde’s salutary warning ‘Your silence will not protect you’ has been printed onto a sticker.

Profits from sales of the sticker sets go to the Feminist Library in Peckham, not far from where I live in South East London.
