List of feminist poets

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of feminist poets. Historically, literature has been a male-dominated sphere, and any poetry written by a woman could be seen as feminist. Often, feminist poetry refers to that which was composed after the 1960s and the second wave of the feminist movement.[1][2] This list focuses on poets who take explicitly feminist approaches to their poetry.
