More about the Alphabet of Women:
The Alphabet of Women brings together twenty-six eclectic alliterating poets to tell the story of woman through the sounds and cadences of the alphabet. From rage to tenderness, politics to the body, motherhood to daughterhood, vaginas to mother earth, poets were invited to tell it like it is and follow their heart. This anthology is powerful in its diverse expressions of what womanhood means and acknowledges in both subtle and formidable ways how multifaceted and still bravely unifying this story is.
