** Summer Book Box due out in June. Members get 25% off Books **


Feminist Book Fortnight starts this weekend and we're celebrating with this fierce round up of some of our favourite feisty feminist and/or womanist poetry collections from recent months, in no particular order. Ranging from Sophie Collins' powerful debut Who is Mary Sue?, which tackles attitudes to women's writing, to Isn't Forever by Amy Key about the slipperiness of female selves; Girls Are Coming Out of the Woods, Tishani Doshi's battle cry for women to rise up against rape and violence, and Sinead Morrissey's exploration of the first female pilot.

Throughout Feminism Fortnight we're also offering 30% off the incredible PBS Spring Choice Who is Mary Sue? by Sophie Collins using the code FEMINISTFORTNIGHT. Take a look through this wide range of poetry by strong female poets below for further inspiration.
