Unmaking the Patriarchy of the Mind w/ Kristen Millares Young

April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

The Get Lit festival!

During this reading and discussion, five award-winning women writers will share poetry and prose, and discuss writing against patriarchal expectations—both overtly and implicitly—within their work and in their writing lives. From persona poems in the voice of the Russian fairytale witch Baba Yaga commenting on contemporary America, to centering the Latina experience in tales of settler colonialism, to autobiographical poems that recount and confront sexism in the workplace, to personal essays about a mother fighting to wring out the “toxic” from her son’s masculinity, these writers subvert the narrative to form a more powerful female identity.
