Abstract:

"Published anonymously by Women in the Weather Underground Organization in 1975, these poems express solidarity with the victims of U.S. imperialism--at home and abroad--at a time when the poets were in hiding, labeled terrorists for their violent actions against American state. The poems range in intensity, clarity, and lyricism. Perhaps because they are "not professional poets," the value of poetry as cultural work here shows what is possible for women writing and reading in a community. The introduction makes the purpose of the book clear: "This is a women's book. During these years we have been part of the righteous struggles for the liberation of women. The active and principled sisterhood of women is a crucial part of the struggle to free all people. Unity among women enables us to be vigilant and forceful against sexism, to encourage and strengthen each other, and to develop a culture of resistance."--Publisher's website.
