The world is not as it should be – what should we do about that?

Stories also help us understand that the world is not what it should be. When someone is offered — through reading a story — a window into what that the world feels like for someone else, it can help them recognize unjustness. And hopefully, it creates a desire to help fix the inequality. Stories can help illuminate the fact that power is unequally distributed based on race, class, and gender in our world. NoveList is committed to helping shine a light on unjustness and inequality.
