Poems in honor of Women's History Month

The Academy of American Poets recently put together a selection of poem favorites to kick off the start of Women’s History Month. Lucille Clifton's "sisters," from The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton 1965-2010, made the list of 11 poems. We love the list so much, we want to share the picks with you.
