For feminism, poetry is not just a weapon. More than anything else it is a place. A space where the struggle against silence, disparagement, and invisibilising of women’s words dwells. A space where oner can be, name, and name oneself, without patriarchal mediation. From the 1970s through to the present day, poetry and feminism have been interlaced in awakening consciousness, slapping down indifferent and conformist thought, demolishing any attempt at learned justificiation. Poets of then and now, hands that write, stained with ink, life, and our blood of every day. Wounded and restless. Turning over the earth, revealing roots that assuage our hunger: Maria Beneyto, Maria-Mercè Marçal, Maria Cinta Montagut, Marta Pessarrodona. We raise their verses and ours all the way to the moon!

Title taken from the poem Recerca by Maria Beneyto.
