Passion. Laughter. Divorce. Mom bodies. Beauty. Truth. Ferocity. Forgiveness. Love. Laundry. From the outstanding to the unexpected, this life-changing collection of poetry features a wide range of work from both renowned and lesser-known female poets from the past 150 years. Edited by acclaimed poet and author Georgia Heard, this anthology features poetry from Elizabeth Alexander, Maya Angelou, Margaret Atwood, Julianna Baggott, Marilyn Chin, Emily Dickinson, Marie Howe, Naomi Shihab Nye, Sylvia Plath, and many others. Organized into five thematic sections centered on the topics of Love, Motherhood, Work, Family and Friends, and Balance, this book not only offers wisdom, comfort, reckoning, and redemption to readers of any age or gender, but also reminds us of how pleasurable and enriching it can be to lose ourselves in the power of well-crafted words. "This is the collection of poetry we have all been waiting for - honestly, favorite sister poets in one place, singing out and to each other, astonishing, evocative, domestic, divine, gathered and arranged with breathless precision." - Eve Ensler, Tony Award-winning playwright and author of The Vagina Monologues
