From the literary and mythical to the silently heroic, 45 unique women are celebrated in this collection of poems dedicated to their individuality and contributions to society. The poems empathize with both the pain and wonder experienced by women who range from Virginia Wolfe to Frida Kahlo. The collection expands beyond the individuals to address universal connections between women, using incisive imagery to reveal the various layers in themes that include sexuality, maternity, and self-awareness.
