    This is an amazing poetry collection from a variety of viewpoints, in a variety of styles, on the experience of not just being female, but being of any group that's been marginalized or stigmatized or had (having) to fight for their rights. Very inspiring, heartbreaking, angering and N...

    Inclusive, Intersectional, and Feminist AF (Full disclosure: I received a free ARC for review through NetGalley.) I want to believe I?m a better woman now that I?m writing poems. that when I say, poems I mean another way to say, revenge. (Denice Frohman, ?Hunger?...

    I really enjoyed a lot of these poems. They were beautiful and well written and some of them hit me in the gut. The egalley that I was didn't have great formatting (and reading verse in ebook formats is tricky enough anyway), so this is one I'd want to revisit in a physical form. ...

    I find it rare that I like an entire poetry collection, even more so when it's by multiple poets and this is one of those poetry books where I found myself either really enjoying some of the poems or not and skimming or skipping them. This is a collection by a diverse group of poets w...

    I enjoyed this poetry book and don't want to give much away about it. But I do want to say that this book is worth the read, it covers different topics (from many different points of views.) that are filled with truths and so many feelings. From empowerment, womanhood, racism, war, to ...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a great anthology and I'm glad that I read it, but poetry is so hit or miss for me that while I enjoyed some poems in this collection, a lot of them went right over my head. I enjoyed The Witch Doesn't Burn in this One so m...

    Since April is National Poetry Month, I decided to read this new collection of feminist poems for the month. A lot of reviews are saying how 'timely' this collection is, and that's absolutely true. But I'd also add that feminist poetry has always been timely and necessary. What str...

    I absolutely devoured this poetry collection, in the same way that I do the words of Rupi Kaur. This is a timely and topical collection from a diverse range of contributors, and while some of the form was experimental to the point that it was lost on me (Matriot Acts, for example), o...

    I knew I had to read this book right away. It's an anthology that has been beautifully formatted to promote feminist ideologies. Most of all to speak against racism, misogyny, cultural appropriation etc. This collection of poems penned by various poets speaks to all in this time of cha...

    A big thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a quick but hard-hitting collection of poems. It is also the perfect example of intersectional feminism in the 21st century. The poems range in the sub-topics they expl...

    This is, first and foremost, a necessary and important piece of literature. It?s vital that material such as this is published because it gives people the voice that they should?ve been given long ago. This is a great compilation of poems from a variety of women, surrounding differ...

    I'm floored by the variety of voices of the contributions, and perspectives represented. The photographs add to, rather than distract from, the text. My favorite poems were Sally Ride Speaks to the Schoolgirls by Laura Fairgrieve, An Open Letter to the Protestors Outside the Planned Pa...

    This book is so diverse, in both its prose and in its collection of writers. Different expressions, different experiences all spoken through the gendered female voice. This book is timely and timeless all at once. I deliberately took my time working through the pages of this book. Not ...

    This is a timely, well-curated collection that highlights powerful voices confronting the Trump administration and the legacy of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and violence it has perpetuated. The variety of perspectives included is crucial to understanding the resistance, an...

    DNF @ 43% (marking it as read tho bc of the time I spent reading it) I got a copy of this book via NetGalley. My main problem with this was the format. It's a mess. "Copy not for distribution" is plastered all over the book, sometimes cutting poems in half. Sometimes a poem was s...

    What I Liked One of the main thing I like about this collection of poems is the fact that you can tell it is written by a wide array of women. You can tell they all have different life experiences and circumstances. For me, that is a sign of a well rounded collection. Due to this th...

    As soon as I saw this book I knew I had to read it. I adored the cover. I adored the title. I adored the concept. And now, after I have finished reading it, I can safely say that I adored the content. The nature of the poems collected here are to promote feminist ideologies and to d...

    This made me think of How I Resist (though of the two, I liked that one better). This book has a diverse collection of poetry, about women, about resistance, about feminism, racism and other issues. CW for sex, rape, abuse, violence, racism and possibly other things I missed. Sadly...

    Dear Women of Resistance: Poems for a New Feminism, It?s not you. It?s me. I tried to appreciate you for what you were but came to realise that you and I were simply not compatible. Not wanting to give up before giving us a chance I read you from cover to cover. I?ll admit tha...

    Thank you Netgalley for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review Before I saw this book on Netgalley, I had never heard of it. Both the cover and the synopsis intrigued me, and after doing some research about it I figured I would love it. I tried. God, I really tried. ...

    As I write this advance review on the Sunday of the Oscars and consider the role of women in film now, I reflect on the verses in this collection as well. Maybe this is my form of triangulation today. What I discovered in Women of Resistance, first, is a pulsing idea. This idea of e...
