7 Badass Women Writers to Read During Women’s History Month
I first heard of milk and honey from my wonderful friend Sarah aka the other amazing author of Freshly Feminist. She had read it and shared excerpts and then gave it to me for Christmas. Kaur uses words filled with power, beauty and heartbreak. I am excited to share this beautiful work with you and to take a look at it from a feminist perspective. In her own words, Kaur describes the first section of her book like this:. Even as somebody who has never encountered sexual abuse, this section was extremely powerful, addressing the message we teach girls early on and how it can affect their future relationships. Right away, the voice in this section develops a relationship with her body where she feels that it is not her own.
Her poems, no matter their length, touch on multiple pressure points. But they never were. They were only forgotten. And so, when this happens Rupi has fulfilled her goal. Grey, windy and below zero, the air had a bite to it and was only getting worse as snow began to fall. Winter blues took me as its prisoner.
