The act of writing is not typically viewed as an assertion of power or an articulation of authority. Putting pen to paper requires only a voice and an idea. However, the women included in this anthology do more than defy this long-entrenched logic…. the poems and poets included in Women Write Resistance work to display the activism of poetry and the power of the woman-poet. Wiseman’s anthology is a carefully constructed, masterfully executed, and necessary contribution to the study of women’s writing.
