Dangerous Ladies by Jennifer Lagier

Women are angry.
Fed up with being treated
like servants, sex toys,
disposable baggage.

They stand up, speak out,
cast off victimhood,
refuse to silently cower,
hide in the shadows.

Dangerous Amazons declare war
against misogyny, explode
the good old boy network,
reclaim their power.

Jennifer Lagier has published thirteen books, taught with California Poets in the Schools, co-edits the Homestead Review, helps coordinate Monterey Bay Poetry Consortium readings. Newest books: Scene of the Crime (Evening Street Press), Harbingers (Blue Light Press), Camille Abroad (FutureCycle Press). Forthcoming: Like a B Movie (FutureCycle Press, 2018).
