About this book
Walking on Fire brings together the unique voices of 38 Haitian women interviewed between 1991 and 1994. "What I have witnessed,"says one, "I have no tongue to tell."

"For some [of the women], mere survival is an act of resistance. Others resist through poetry, journalism, dance or painting. Some are even involved in political activism, women's advocacy and reestablishing economic and political structures."
