Our book, ‘Red Tents – Unravelling our Past and Weaving a Shared Future’ is now available.
It is now available as an e-book or paperback from all major booksellers.
In the book, we have documented our shared hope, vision and dream of Red Tents as liberatory community spaces for women around the world. We offer practical support and ideas to help women to establish and sustain a Red Tent in their community. We have also included questions and practices to support you and to stimulate discussion about some of the challenges that we know Red Tents face.
When women come together, magic happens. We know this to be true from our own experience. And we have also seen that something else happens too when these communities grow: they can become a beacon to others.
We think the practice and ritual of Red Tents can be part of imagining spaces in our lives that help us to understand together what is possible in a world that will never be the same, that will never get back to normal.
As we adapt to change forced by a crisis of health, climate, inequality and systemic injustice we have multiple opportunities to reflect on what the world is calling for right now and how we can respond.
We stand for creating Red Tents collectively, spaces where we practice leading together, being together, imagining together. We believe in spaces where care becomes a blueprint between us.
We support spaces where we can engage together in the long-term work of unpicking oppressive systems. We want spaces where we can make mistakes as we learn so we emerge stronger together and connected to ourselves.
In this book we weave together the voices over 70 people who we interviewed, to create a shared story about the role Red Tents can play in our lives. We would love you to read it.
