About The Book

Australia has a rich history of feminist poetry but there is no one kind of feminist voice.

The seventy new poems commissioned for this anthology demonstrate a complexity of social, political, and cultural visions.

Contemporary Australian Feminist Poetry is united by the shared effort to shape 'responsible writing' on everyday subject matter: family, fear, dreams, love, literary inheritance, the body, power, fun, pain, metaphors of self.

Each of these poems cuts its own path through language. Together, their politics are restless, inextricably tied to the now.
