16 Days of Stories


Challenge yourself, challenge abuse. Get involved in our reading challenge for 16 Days of Activism. 

It's getting to that season where we all just want to cuddle up in bed with a good book. So why not join Solace's reading challenge as part of the 16 Days of Activism.

Courageous books and powerful words have always been at the heart of feminist and social justice activism, which is why we are challenging you to pick up the books and get inspired. Whether it's a classic, your favourite or a brand new best seller, we want to make sure that the words of women and those who are promoting equality are being heard... or in this case read!

To sign up for the challenge, follow these steps:
