There Are Girls like Lions - Poems about Being a WomanChronicle Books
An anthology of poems about the experience of being a woman.
With 30 truly rousing and empowering poems, There Are Girls Like Lions is a celebration of womanhood in all its dimensions of dark and light, including love, beauty, friendship, motherhood, work, aging, and more. This powerful collection of poems will resonate with modern women who honor the uniqueness and complexity of each woman's struggle and experience.
The foreword, by award-winning American poet Cole Swensen, is as powerful as the poetry--giving historic context to the evolution of women's linguistic voice through the first, second, and third waves of feminism.
This makes a special, heartfelt gift for the strong women in your life--the ones who have struggled, worried, fought, "showed up", listened, taught, triumphed--a perfect gift for those girls like lions.
