From the beautifully poignant ‘A Girl is Born’ to the darkly ironic ‘Pillory Hillary’, we are lead on a veritable roller-coaster of emotions. It highlights those women who were catalysts for the changing of women’s roles and those that succeeded against the odds to change the world around them along with the strange and sometimes dangerous nature of their clothes, women in fiction and the real meaning of feminism.
Most of all though this is an empowering collection dealing with humour and sensitivity with all the girls and women you should have heard of as well as those little known and unsung heroines be they match girls, authors, sportswomen, scientists, artists, teachers, suffragettes or queens. Fabulous poems from three fabulous poets.
