In Honor of International Women’s Day and Women
In honor of International Women’s Day and of women around the world, 100 extraordinary women were asked to choose a poem that moved them to tears. Those distinguished women included Judi Dench and Sunny Jacobs. The resulting book Poems That Make Women Cry was released this week and many of those who submitted their favorite poems were asked to read them.
Poems That Make Women Cry followed the anthology Poems That Make Men Cry which was published in 2012. Both volumes were collected and created by Ben Holden and his father Anthony.
