I am a secondary English teacher in Queensland and am trying to expose my students to some feminist poetry, particularly if it of the protest kind, but all the poems that I tried to pass by my P&C committee have been shot down as being too ‘adult’. I was wondering if you (or anyone for that matter) were able to give me a few suggestions.
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. I want my kids to be aware of feminism and what it means, especially in a place where there is no exposure to it whatsoever.
Anybody got anything?
