What I’m Reading: Words Dance’s “Four Fierce Poems to Feed the Feminist in You”

Today’s “reading” is more of a “watching.” Words Dance features four videos of slam poetry around women’s issues today: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” by Brenna Twohy (or maybe it’s “Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them” — the internet likes it both ways), “Shrinking Women” by Lily Myers, “The Type” by Sarah Kay (my personal favorite in this group), and “Cab Rides and the Morning After” by Alysia Harris. Really powerful stuff. My inner feminist (and my outer one) definitely feel satiated.
