No Roses From My Mouth is a collection of poems written in jail by feminist poet and academic Dr. Stella Nyanzi. Wairimũ Mũrĩithi looks at the feminist solidarity movement that is organising offline and online actions for Nyanzi's release, and reflects on the interconnected struggles that Nyanzi represents.
