A Fly Girl's Guide To University : Being a Woman of Colour at Cambridge and Other Institutions of Elitism and Power
A FLY Girl's Guide to University is a collection of memoirs, essays, poetry and prose from four women of colour who studied at the University of Cambridge. It is a multifaceted calling out of the wrongness underpinning their shared experience at Cambridge, and the experiences of others in similar institutions throughout the UK. But they describe it best:
'The purpose of our book is simple: we believe that our lives, our experiences, and our voices matter, especially in a place of power, pervasive whiteness and exclusivity. Our voices not only deserve to be heard but must be because the 'Cambridge experience' of a middle-class, white, cisgendered, able-bodied man is not the only one. Ours cannot be silenced'.
