Despite significant advances made in the fight for women’s equality over the past fifty years, there still exists a deeply entrenched hatred of and prejudice against women and girls across the globe. As manifested during the 2016 US presidential campaign and election, sexism is not only alive and well, it is thriving. Five award-winning poets share poems of witness and resistance, shedding necessary light on the realities lurking behind the myth that we live in a postfeminist society. Join Lisa Dordal, Kendra DeColo, Wendy Chin-Tanner, Allison Joseph, and Cynthia Manick.
