Mindy Nettifee - “For Young Women Who Don’t Consider Themselves Feminists”

"Maybe you’re not ready to acknowledge what you owe to your mothers, and to their mothers, and to their mothers, to the women who did not raise you but loved you before you even existed."

Mindy Nettifee is the co-founder of the WRITE NOW poetry society and a Write Bloody author. Her poem “Metal Detectors and Other Important Thresholds” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She is currently touring with Rachel McKibbens as The Last Nerve Tour. Check out more of their work. It’s honest, funny and important, a difficult and beautiful combination.
