Women Write Resistance: Poets Resist Gender Violence is ideal for use in introductory and advanced Gender and Women’s Studies courses.  The more than 100 poems  give fresh insight into women’s experience of  various types of violence– war, rape, domestic abuse, incest, intimidation— and their  social contexts,  while reflecting on root causes of violence, methods of resistance, and visions for a world without violence. The book reminds everyone that violence against women is still unfortunately a prominent part of our society, while giving tools that enhance understanding and resistance.
