Of Course, I’m a Feminist!
Celebrating International Women’s Day, 2015
Edited by Ellen Goldberg
A small group of feminist poets, ranging in age from 15-73, explore what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. Paying homage to the women who paved the path toward freedom and equality, the poets in this collection share their voices as mothers, daughters, survivors, fighters, workers and leaders. These poems come from sometimes hidden, innate human truths. Each poem provides a means to which women can express their rage, frustration and grief, all the while finding the humor, joy and celebration in what unites us all.
“What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?
The world would split open.” ~ Muriel Rukeyser
