She is Fierce: Brave, Bold and Beautiful Poems by Women is a powerful collection of 150 poems written by women - from classic, much loved poets to bold modern voices. Collected by poet Ana Sampson, this collection celebrates the centenary of women's suffrage at a time when we are still having important conversations about women's right to be treated as equals. It speaks of universal experiences and emotions.

The anthology is divided into the following sections:
Roots and Growing Up
Friendship
Love
Nature
Freedom, Mindfulness and Joy
Fashion, society and body image
Protest, courage and resistance
Endings

She is Fierce contains an inclusive array of voices, from modern and contemporary poets such as Maya Angelou and Grace Nichols to poets from previous centuries including Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Ella Wheeler Wilcox and Charlotte Bronte.
