AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Introduction by Kay Schaffer, 15.1.1992. ' The volume is divided into three sections, each one dealing with a different dimension of women's experience. The first section takes up social, political and environmental themes....The second section, 'cinnabar dreams', turns inward to the inevitable themes of love and lust...These final poems reflect the collected wisdom of ripe and wisened feminists involved in public and private battles over time.'
