“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” ― Coco Chanel

To honor Women’s History Month, every Monday in March we will be celebrating influential women in the spheres of art, activism, and writing. For decades (more like centuries) women’s experiences had only been seen through the lenses of those who society deemed acceptable to publicly discuss them, men. For our first Women’s History Month post, this week we share a few notable works from women that have used the beauty and power of poetry to convey uniquely female perspectives and experiences.

The Poetics of Disobedience by Alice Notley

“Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou

“Poem about My Rights” by June Jordan

“Pro Femina” by Carolyn Kizer

“poem in praise of menstruation” by Lucille Clifton

“To The Indifferent Women” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

“Mirror” by Sylvia Plath
