Seductress Divine by Joy Sheridan | Women’s History Month

She wore only an expression of fatal illusions, The power to capture and tear off at whim Those moths which fluttered Low, bright and light around her. Memory served no purpose while in her presence, For she would but lift her eyes and sweep them Over the brow of lovers – fatal she was, A… Continue reading Seductress Divine by Joy Sheridan | Women’s History Month

Mona Lisa by Becca Harrington | International Women’s Day Celebration

I won’t be painted by men’s intruding eyes and loan my body to a gaze unwanted. My mind, my eyes, my thighs, a crimson decision, protested with signs that say: ‘I won’t stop until this decision is mine’. I won’t be quiet so you can be comfortable, and live in a world created to fetishise… Continue reading Mona Lisa by Becca Harrington | International Women’s Day Celebration
