Women of Resistance

Четене
A collection with a feminist ethos that cuts across race, gender identity, and sexuality.
Creative activists have reacted to the 2016 Presidential election in myriad ways. Editors Danielle Barnhart and Iris Mahan have drawn on their profound knowledge of the poetry scene to put together an extraordinary list of poets taking a feminist stance against the new authority. What began as an informal collaboration of like-minded poets—to be released as a handbound chapbook—has grown into something far more substantial and ambitious: a fully fledged anthology of women’s resistance, with a portion of proceeds supporting Planned Parenthood and the Center for Reproductive Rights.
Representing the complexity and diversity of contemporary womanhood and bolstering the fight against racism, sexism, and violence, this collection unites powerful new writers, performers, and activists with established poets. Contributors include Denice Frohman, Elizabeth Acevedo, Sandra Beasley, Jericho Brown, Mahogany L. Browne, Danielle Chapman, Tyehimba Jess, Kimberly Johnson, Jacqueline Jones LaMon, Maureen N. McLane, Joyce Peseroff, Mary Ruefle, Trish Salah, Patricia Smith, Anne Waldman, and Rachel Zucker.

NAOMI SHIHAB NYE
NOT EVEN
Did you hear her this morning, Yemen crying?
Weeping for arched windows
crushed for nothing
and the people who dwelled therein,
to whom can she wail?
Syria, sobbing for years now, Palmyra, Aleppo,
the ghosts of gracious avenues,
Syria tilts an ear, but cannot save herself, much less Yemen.
Or Palestine, gasping to the south. So tired. So very tired.
They’d help each other if they could but they cannot.
Don’t ask a man to help. Don’t ask any man.
Smudgy-faced child behind rubble, no more mother,
who remembers a better life?
What you think your own fear and worry, just a scrap of
sorrowing wind sweeping worldwide—
it’s not new.
It’s not even you

say, beautiful

& point to the map of your body

say, brave

& wear your skin like a gown or a suit

say, hero

& cast yourself in the lead role
