The Phoenix Rising – women in poetry

This Phoenix Rising is a tribute to all women rising, across the world! Rising to Resist, Rising to Change, Rising to Express, Rising to Transform, Rising to Celebrate! Listen to women present poems on Rising in Solidarity. As Audre Lorde said, “For women, then, poetry is not a luxury. It is the vital necessity of our existence. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then into more tangible action. Poetry is the way we give name to the nameless so it can be thought.”
