"The combination of image with texts complementing and conversing with each other provides a textured, layered engagement with the subject matter."

-- "Art Radar Asia"

"[The] stories told dispel stereotypes and take on the complex challenges of colonialism, militarization, love, resistance, family, migration, and more. They reveal the intersectional and multilayered experiences of Southeast Asian women in the diaspora."

-- "NBC News"

"Inspiring . . . uses a collage of art forms to portray varied, and usually under-represented, female identities . . . [and] shows how marginalized women have become empowered through their fervent and thought-provoking artwork and writings."

-- "Journal of Postcolonial Writing"

"[A] collection that is at once scholarly yet accessible, purposely fragmented yet also deliberately interconnected, and always centering women in ways that surprise, challenge, and even provoke."

-- "International Examiner"
