I need a real woman poem
A real woman is proud and strong. She respects herself and others who have earned her respect. She is aware of who she is. She does not seek definition from the person she chooses to be with, nor does she expect them to read her thoughts.

Poem: The Strength of a Woman
In the spring of , Tannenbaum was invited to recite her poems at San Quentin, California's infamous maximum-security prison. Afterward, she was invited to teach a creative writing course in poetry Judith Tannenbaum. When Judith Tannenbaum last met with her poetry writing class at San Quentin prison, one of the students commented, "Now I'm going to give you an assignment: write about these past four years from your point of view; tell your story; let us know what you learned. In stirring and intimate prose, Tannenbaum details the challenges, rewards, and paradoxes of teaching poetry to maximum-security inmates convicted of capital crimes. Recounting how she and her students shared profound and complicated lessons about humanity and life both inside and outside San Quentin's walls, Tannenbaum tells provocative stories of obsession, racism, betrayal, despair, courage, and beauty. Contrary to the growing public perception of prisoners as demons, the men in this poetry class-Angel, Coties, Elmo, Glenn, Richard, Spoon-emerge not as beasts or heroes but as human beings with expressive voices, thoughts, and feelings strikingly similar to the free. Tannenbaum provides revealing views of conditions in the cellblocks and shows how the realities of prison life often paralleled her own life experiences. She also relates such events as visits to her group by prominent poets including Nobel Prize-winner Czeslaw Milosz ; a prison production of Waiting for Godot sponsored by Samuel Beckett himself; and the presentation of her students' work to a class of sixth and eighth graders, who connected to the prisoners' words by writing their own poems to the inmates. This honest, unbiased account of how one woman artist came to share purpose and inspiration with the prisoners at San Quentin demonstrates the power of human bonds and the power of poetry and other art forms as a means of self-expression and communication within and beyond locked cells.

In middle school, when I was a scrawny girl with big thighs and a bigger butt, I was buoyed through three years of not being asked to dance by the phrase, "Real women have curves. No, I was diminutive and 12, but the saying felt like a big Eff You to all the popular girls with their perfectly straight hair and perfectly straight bodies. And I liked it. It made me feel special and powerful and not worthless, and it pitted me against the perfectly straight popular girls, and I came out on top.

The Iranian writer Sadeq Hedayat is the most influential figure in twentieth-century Persian fiction--and the object of a kind of cult after his suicide in His masterpiece The Blind Owl is the most important novel of modern Iran. Its abrupt, tortured opening sentence, "There are sores which slowly erode the mind in solitude like a kind of canker," is one of the best known and most frequently recited passages of modern Persian. But underneath the book's uncanniness and its narrative eccentricities, Michael Beard traces an elegant pastiche of familiar Western traditions. A work of advocacy for a disturbing and powerful piece of fiction, his comprehensive analysis reveals the significance of The Blind Owl as a milestone not only for Persian writing but also for world literature.
Strong Women Quotes
BECAUSE we have lost the path our ancestors cleared kneeling in perilous undergrowth, our children cannot find their way. BECAUSE we have abandoned our wisdom of mothering and fathering, our befuddled children give birth to children they neither want nor understand. BECAUSE we have forgotten how to love, the adversary is within our gates, an holds us up to the mirror of the world shouting, "Regard the loveless". Therefore we pledge to bind ourselves to one another, to embrace our lowliest, to keep company with our loneliest, to educate our illiterate, to feed our starving, to clothe our ragged, to do all good things, knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters. IN HONOR of those who toiled and implored God with golden tongues, and in gratitude to the same God who brought us out of hopeless desolation, we make this pledge.
Poetry, like so many art forms, has a way of expressing the inexpressible and exposing human nature through musical rhythms, vivid imagery, and powerful metaphors. Throughout history, female poets have used their voices to be catalysts for social and political change, and their words are just as important today as they ever have been. There are countless volumes of poetry written by women who deserve our praise and adoration, but we took some time to select some of the ones most inspiring us at this moment in time.

Instead, she gives these women a new definition of femininity, and as she does so, she demonstrates that this idea of being a woman and feminine are extremely subjective. Rather than the importance revolving around the physical characteristics of a woman, she shows that it is instead how a woman carries herself and uses the characteristics she was born with. Because English is a Germanic language and Finnish is a Uralic language, they have very few similarities in terms of grammar and vocabulary. Therefore, I decided that it would be the best translation if I focused on thematic and tonal elements, along with figurative language.
