    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...

    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...

    There have been so many books on feminism this year, presumably to highlight that 2018 marks 100 years since some women in the UK won the vote. While celebrating the suffragettes and the success of the suffrage movement founded in 1903 and led by Emmeline Pankhurst, "Women of Resistanc...

    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...

    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 is a fine collection of poets, men as well as women, speaking out against patriarchy and for the power and dignity of the individual. The focus is, as suggested by the title, on women but the poets also speak out about race. Some of the most interesting poems concern the intersect...

    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 loved reading this varied collection of women's voices of resistance. I read them aloud to my spouse at night and while not every poem spoke to me, many gave me a better understanding of the lives of other women in today's world. I particularly love the work of Denise Frohman, whose ...

    Another one that wasn?t for me. Some books need to find the right reader and I wasn?t it this time around. The prose is dense and sometimes hard to follow in the collection of previously published works compiled under the umbrella of Women of Resistance. I have no doubt that someon...

    This is an ARC I received for an honest review from NetGalley. I?ll be honest, mixed poetry books usually mean mixed reviews for me, some you love, some not so much. This one was definitely a diverse collection, and some might need trigger warnings (even more so after this last we...

    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. ...

    Although the poems themselves weren?t bad?in fact, I?d say that a lot the poems I read were pretty good, there was just something that hindered me from wanting to continue reading. For a poetry anthology with a heavy emphasis on feminism, gender, and sexuality, I just failed to f...

    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...

    A literary work that tackles femininity, sexuality and gender identity says the blurb but it goes deeper, there was more to it than that it talked about racism, violence, abuse... I love that the collection took on such subjects, especially in this day of age. It would disseminate and ...

    This is a fine collection of poets, men as well as women, speaking out against patriarchy and for the power and dignity of the individual. The focus is, as suggested by the title, on women but the poets also speak out about race. Some of the most interesting poems concern the intersect...

    Feminist Poetry? Yes, please! ...

    Real rating 2,5 When I saw the cover of the book I knew I wanted to give it a shot. Lately, I?ve been almost scared of books about feminism because I?ve read a couple of books who took feminism to an extreme point, which I don?t want to label as feminism anymore. This book cove...

    This is an ARC I received for an honest review from NetGalley. I?ll be honest, mixed poetry books usually mean mixed reviews for me, some you love, some not so much. This one was definitely a diverse collection, and some might need trigger warnings (even more so after this last we...

    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. ...

    Although the poems themselves weren?t bad?in fact, I?d say that a lot the poems I read were pretty good, there was just something that hindered me from wanting to continue reading. For a poetry anthology with a heavy emphasis on feminism, gender, and sexuality, I just failed to f...

    all the women i know are perennials -- marigolds, daffodils soft things that refuse to die This collection of poems is everything I wanted. Women of Resistance: Poems for a New Feminism is a collection of poems from various writers about feminism (duh). As with any collection, ...

    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 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 stunning collection includes a variety of authors with wildly different backgrounds and styles. I felt like this is one of the few instances of actual intersectional feminism in collections and I feel both shocked and empowered by the messages included. 49 different contributors ...

    Thanks to @netgalley and #orbooks for a free copy of #womenofresistance for my honest review. This is a collection of feminist poetry by 41 authors and edited by Danielle Barnhart and Iris Mahan. The description said a feminist stance against the new administration so I knew it was...

    A literary work that tackles femininity, sexuality and gender identity says the blurb but it goes deeper, there was more to it than that it talked about racism, violence, abuse... I love that the collection took on such subjects, especially in this day of age. It would disseminate and ...

    I loved reading this varied collection of women's voices of resistance. I read them aloud to my spouse at night and while not every poem spoke to me, many gave me a better understanding of the lives of other women in today's world. I particularly love the work of Denise Frohman, whose ...

    Another one that wasn?t for me. Some books need to find the right reader and I wasn?t it this time around. The prose is dense and sometimes hard to follow in the collection of previously published works compiled under the umbrella of Women of Resistance. I have no doubt that someon...

    quite the stunning lineup. the poetry did not disappoint. i haven?t loved a poetry anthology this much. the anger is earned and authentic and respectable, but made it hard to read for long periods of time. id wished for more hope. but so well written. ...

    I had DNFed it in the first go but then gave it a chance and it proved to be fine. ...

    I always forget that I should not read poetry in the ebook format. The format of the poems is often wrong and in this case, the title of the collection (which typically would be on the corners of the page) was intermixed on the page. Occasionally it was even within the poems themselves...

    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...
