Sometimes human rights issues can feel very far away. That’s why one of the aims of this site is to make them relevant in our daily lives.
Esy Casey’s Monday boldly bridges the global and the local. Originally written as a short (and tiny) graphic narrative, the story follows a day in the life of a girl in San Francisco and a woman in Baghdad. The two figures are separated by time zones but connected by something else entirely.
This is the very first piece of fiction on this site. Enjoy.
