Decades after female poets of the ‘60s and ‘70s gained attention and acclaim, feminist poetry is having a moment again — particularly for women of color.
The latest wave began to form before the last election, according to poet and scholar Julie Enszer, who is editor and publisher of multicultural lesbian art and literary journal Sinister Wisdom. ”Prior to the election of Donald Trump, periodically I would hear people say, ‘Do we still need feminist journals?'” Enszer said. “And the moment of the election of Trump was a resounding, ‘’Yes, we do.’”
