In response to the 2016 Presidential election the artistic activists of the nation have reacted in a myriad of ways, one of which was poetry. Editors Danielle Barnhart and Iris Mahan have weaved through the poetry scene to collect an extraordinary list of poets who have taken a feminist stance against this new administration. This process started as a casual group project and has now expanded into an anthology of women’s resistance, proceeds of which support Planned Parenthood and the Center for Reproductive Rights.
With poems that fight racism, sexism, and violence from powerful new writers, performers, and activists with established poets, this collection represents the complexity and diversity of contemporary womanhood. Join Strand as a panel of contributors discuss their work. List of panelists to come!
