1. Being Independent by Rupi Kaur

i could light a whole city
i want to have you
cause the two of us combined
could set it on fire.”

2. Aurora Leigh by Elizabeth Browning
“Therefore, this same world
Uncomprehended by you must remain
Uninfluenced by you. Women as you are,
Mere women, personal and passionate,
You give us doting mothers, and chaste wives.
Sublime Madonnas, and enduring saints!
We get no Christ from you, — and verily
We shall not get a poet, in my mind.”
‘Aurora Leigh’ is a verse novel that follows the title character, an aspiring poet, through several terrifying twists and turns. Aurora’s cousin and would-be suitor, Romney Leigh, summarizes his attitude toward her and women writers of the time in one telling passage.
3. No Fault in Women by Robert Herrick
“- No fault in women, though they be
But seldom from suspicion free;
– No fault in womankind at all,
If they but slip, and never fall.”
‘No Fault in Women’ explores how the things women desire, the thoughts they have, and the actions they take are not their fault. They may fall, but they never slip.
Similarly, if they complain about how tedious their dress is or dye their cheeks, it is not due to vanity, but to society’s beauty standards.
4. Fearful Women by Carolyn Kizer
“An educated woman is a danger.
Lock up your mate! Keep a submissive stranger.”

5. Two Women by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
“A cruel tongue and a jealous mind.
Void of pity and full of greed,
She judges the world by her narrow creed;
A brewer of quarrels, a breeder of hate,
Yet she holds the key to ‘Society’s’ Gate.”
The poem is about two women she knew who were very different from one another. One was joyful and merciful, while the other was cold and chaste. The poem discusses how society perceives each of the women.
6. Women by Louise Bogan
“They wait, when they should turn to journeys,
They stiffen, when they should bend.
They use against themselves that benevolence
To which no man is friend.”
The poem describes how a woman’s life unfolds when she is forced to live in an abstract space with no access to either the urban or rural worlds. It teaches women to be cautious in their actions and firm in their beliefs.
It is also thought to teach them to indulge their emotions excessively. However, by describing this world, the poet is attempting to demonstrate that it was built by men.
7. There’s Wisdom in Women by Rupert Brooke
“But there’s wisdom in women, of more than they have known,
And thoughts go blowing through them, are wiser than their own.”
The poet discusses how his lover, who is unfamiliar with the concept of love, can speak such truths about it. Even though the poet’s lover is young and inexperienced, she is a woman with inherent wisdom.
8. Lines on Hearing it Declared that No Women Were so Handsome as the English by Mary Darby Robinson
“BEAUTY, the attribute of Heaven!
In various forms to mortals given,
With magic skill enslaves mankind,
As sportive fancy sways the mind.
Search the wide world, go where you will,
VARIETY pursues you still;
Capricious Nature knows no bound,
Her unexhausted gifts are found
In ev’ry clime, in ev’ry face,
Each has its own peculiar grace.”
Have you ever wondered what the women of the world are like? This poem is essentially the poet’s reaction to hearing that English women have been named the most beautiful women in the world. She discusses how all women around the world have their own beauty, and that beauty lies in diversity.
9. They Shut Me up in Prose by Emily Dickenson
“They shut me up in Prose –
As when a little Girl
They put me in the Closet –
Because they liked me “still” –
Still! Could themself have peeped –
And seen my Brain – go round –
They might as wise have lodged a Bird
For Treason – in the Pound –
Himself has but to will
And easy as a Star
Look down opon Captivity –
And laugh – No more have I —”
This poem addresses the discrimination that women faced in early twentieth-century society. Men are represented by Prose, while women are represented by Poetry. The poem demonstrates that even when women were oppressed, they thrived. It also discusses how, when you put a woman down, she will always try her hardest to stand up and reclaim control of her life
10. Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou
“It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
