This is a guest post in support of the #MeToo Women’s Poetry Anthology, edited by Deborah Alma:
A brand new collection of largely new work, from some of our finest poets: that rose up directly out of the collective rage from the #MeToo campaign on social media around the world at the end of 2017.
“This collection is quite the rollercoaster: it made me cry with sadness – and with joy. I salute the courage of the women who have shared the pain of sexual harassment in verse that is lyrical, poignant and powerful
– as will readers of this outstanding collection.”
author of ‘Black Rainbow: How words can heal – my journey through depression’ and mental health campaigner.
“Listen hard- this is what you hear, and what must be said: the hard poetry of truth, exploding into the light, where it goddamn belongs. Read these poems and then decide in what order you want to 1) cry 2) march 3) scream with relief and recognition 4) grab a sword-pen and write your own.”
Singer-songwriter, Musician, with the Dresden Dolls.
Enough tears. Enough silence. It was all of us but we
never knew. Sisters, take my hands, we can say it together:
