A global, multigenerational meditation on women’s shared experiences, Herstories confronts the past and present with gimlet-eyed honesty. The poems invite the reader to re-examine both the women of history and the men who have limited the telling of their stories. They celebrate the courage of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and the hope at the center of every bond between women. They speak the deep pain, the transcendent joy, and the fertile fury of women everywhere.
