I AM EMILIA.
Writer. Wife. Lover. Mother. Muse.
I am unheard.
I want education, equality, opportunity, respect. For us all.
We want choice.
We want a voice.
WE ARE EMILIA.
400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Her story is still our story.
Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us.
Times are finally changing. Not fast enough. It’s up to you. We are all Emilia.
Stand up alongside her and be counted.
