One Change We Want This Women’s Day – 9 Women Share Their Tiny Poems With Us!

Posted: March 11, 2020

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

There’s plenty of things we need to change in this world. Nine women share for our #ittybittypoetry Insta series on IWD.

A day before International Women’s Day, here at Women’s Web, we launched our brand new #ittybittypoetry series on our Instagram handle.

#Ittybittypoetry is a poetry series where you can submit, as the name suggests, tiny poems (just about 20 words) on a cue that we post – each fortnight.

As a part of International Women’s Day, we invited tiny poems on the theme, “One change you want this Women’s Day.” We were flooded with responses and we have handpicked nine of the best ones for you to enjoy reading.

Here they are!
