One of the most pernicious forms of violence enacted against women is the silencing of those who have been violated and abused. The poems in Women Write Resistance: Poets Resist Gender Violence constitute a collective shout of alarm and defiance in the face of such silencing. The voices are rich in power, nuance, raw honesty, and unquestionable grace and beauty. This generous and ambitious anthology is a gathering of necessary and affirming poems written by some of the best poets writing in America today.
