Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program (WGGP)

Join Dr. Evelyne Accad for a talk about her book, House of Tenderness, a collection of five short stories recounting various forms of violence experienced by women in Lebanon. The stories center on the role of tenderness, as a guide understanding and reconstructing the inner house of the self. This quest for self-discovery allows the reader to discover a country where family ties sometimes destroy, and sometimes aid in healing trauma.
