5+ Gloomy Poems About Misogyny: The Ugly Truth

Misogyny. It’s a loaded word, and it seems everywhere these days. From the president-elect’s attitudes toward women to street harassment and everything in between, it can feel like misogyny is all around us. 

This collection of poems attempts to document and make sense of that feeling, to explore how misogyny permeates our lives and thoughts. These poems are angry, sad, frustrated, and hopeful – but above all else, they are honest. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read them.
