“Woman, what are you fighting for?”
Whether for peace
Or for your pieces to be returned to you
Whether for the world
Or waiting for the world to fight for you.
“Watching Melizarani perform on stage is like witnessing the manifestation of a goddess: dazzling, heart-stopping and vitally inspiring.”
– Ng Yi-sheng, Singaporean poet and activist
