Poetry: The Sound of Their Names by Ellen Bass
For the Women of the 19th Amendment
Praise their grit and gospel, their glistening
brains, their minds on fire. Neurons, numbering the stars.
Praise their bones. Their spines and skulls,
the axis, the atlas: I will not and I shall.
Song In My Head: Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys
Quote: “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” – Audre Lorde
