In compiling this collection, Laura Madeline Wiseman had a mission to bring the thematic subject of these poems — violence against women — into the spotlight where the public could not ignore what is too often private or ignored or pushed aside… Wiseman posits poets achieve change by writing poems that break the silence, raise awareness, disrupt established narratives, talk back to the predators and perpetrators, focus anger where it belongs, and serve as a call to change and to action.
