Women's Institute Distinguished Lecture Series, Judy Grahn, feminist poet

Foremother Dr. Judy Grahn is internationally known as a poet, writer, activist and cultural theorist. Her writings helped fuel second wave feminism, gay and lesbian activism, and women’s spirituality movements beginning in 1965. Her memoir, A Simple Revolution: the Making of an Activist Poet, recounts her co-founding of the Gay Women’s Liberation movement and the Women’s Press Collective in 1969. Recent publications include the 2016 selections of her writing on metaformic philosophy in the series Lost & Found at CUNY. And a poetry publication in 2017, Hanging On Our Bones, described as “Contemporary Lamentations in Nine Parts.”
