A BOOK written by a group of North East women will be launched on International Women’s Day.

An anthology of poetry, prose and photography entitled Pandora’s Box was written by contributors associated with the Tees Valley Women’s Centre, which investigates the changing role of women in society, challenges faced by mothers and the causes and effects of crime in the community.

Pandora’s Box uses ancient Greek mythology to explore the impact of crime on the lives of modern women and asks how people can work together to solve problems in society.

Contributor Faye Wylie said: “This has been a great project and my kids are really proud to see that mum is an author now. As a group we have all learned a lot about the community and the way crime affects women.”

The writers will celebrate their achievement with a reading at the Tees Valley Women’s Centre on Friday, March 8 – International Women’s Day – at 11.30am.
