Strange Girls, by Joanie DiMartino, is a beautiful book of poetry with a unique voice that speaks directly about and for the spirit of women who fought against, and transcended, the oppression and limitations placed upon them, both physically and psychologically, both societal and self, and both professional and private, to live a life that expressed their true individuality. In this book Joanie presents poetry, which is eminently accessible, honed, concise and multifaceted in its concept, reaching far into the real politics of feminist literature, and is testament to her devotion to the cause of women’s rights. This is a wonderful book of poetry written by a woman, about women, for everyone.
