SHATTERING GLASS is the first, extraordinary release in a planned series of anthologies from Nasty Woman Press. Nasty Woman is a unique non-profit publisher fighting to help organizations imperiled by the rise of autocracy and the ongoing war against civil and human rights in the United States and across the globe.

Our inaugural collection is a scintillating mixture of top-flight fiction from bestselling authors, fascinating articles, thought-provoking essays, conversations and interviews. Its theme is the empowerment of women, and all profits from this book will be donated to PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

Shattering Glass is an anthology of fascinating stories by and about women of all ages, from a satisfyingly diverse array of backgrounds. The insights and observations are moving, often poetic, and always compelling. This is a book to cherish and one you’ll read and reread for years to come.”
Marcia Clark, New York Times bestselling author

Shattering Glass is an anthology unlike anything I’ve seen before, a diverse collection of high-caliber short fiction, provocative essays, and engaging conversations and interviews, tied together thematically by the writers’ collective commitment to create work that explores our current cultural moment. Opening with Valerie Plame’s fiery call for political engagement and closing with Heather Graham’s poignant reflection on the values instilled by her immigrant parents, this collection surprises and enlightens. Your inner Nasty Woman will approve.”
Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Better Sister
