Synopsis

She is Fierce is an powerful collection of 150 poems written by women – from classic, much loved poets to bold modern voices. This collection celebrates the centenary of women's suffrage at a time when we are still having important conversations about women's right to be treated as equals in all areas. It speaks of universal experiences and emotions. There are poems about courage, freedom, joy, friendship, gossip, fashion, body image, love, roots, resistance and protest and war among others.

The collection contains an inclusive array of voices, from modern and contemporary poets such as Maya Angelou, Rupi Kaur and Grace Nichols to poets from previous centuries including Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Ella Wheeler Wilcox and Charlotte Bronte.

Immerse yourself in poems from Wendy Cope, Carol Ann Duffy, Fleur Adcock, Liz Berry, Jackie Kay, Hollie McNish, Imtiaz Dharker, Helen Dunmore, Mary Oliver and Dorothy Parker, to name but a few!
