Wow. This collection of poetry was powerful. I feel as though it is very timely to what we are facing in our political environment. I will say, some poems fell like they were very men hating and at times this kind of made me uncomfortable which is why I didn’t rate it as high. Amanda Lovelace has 2 other poetry books part of this “series” of women empowerment verse. I plan on reading her other works because I really did enjoy this one.
