Women’s bodies are the site of continued discussion, speculation and law-making, but in their outstanding essay collections, Notes to Self and Constellations, Irish writers Emilie Pine and Sinéad Gleeson set out to reclaim their own bodies and experiences. Emilie considers the heartbreak of fertility treatment and predatory older men, while Sinéad discusses her disability caused by monoarticular arthritis in her hip, and explores the meaning of hair and motherhood. Their preoccupations cross with death, grief and blood, and what it means to be a woman in a patriarchal world. This is guaranteed to be an empowering feminist discussion.
