I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR
Being International Women's Day, here's some prose by Stevie Smith, a poet who observes the world from an educated woman's point of view. She may not think of herself as a feminist, but she definitely has an independent female voice. This one is dedicated to all those women pinned down to a
wasted life of duty and subservience. Hopefully, some day they will find their inner ROAR rather than be shut down in prose. Like these women, this prose is trying to escape and break out into verse and poetry.
