Poetry Published in The Jessie Butler Woman’s Poetry Contest Anthology by Sierra Muses Press, California, USA

 

I’m thrilled to receive my contributor copy of the Jessie Butler Woman’s Contest Anthology 2020 “She Speaks Up”.I’m really thankful to the EIC Mila Johansen for curating this anthology. I’m honored to have my poem “My Path to Freedom” featured in this book.

This is an anthology of poems submitted by women, from around the world, to the first annual Jessie Butler Poetry Contest, in 2020. The contest celebrates the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote, on August 18, 1920. She Speaks Up! has been compiled in honor of Jessie Haver Butler, grandmother of Mila Johansen.

Jessie Butler’s time as a suffragette on the front lines of the women’s movement. During her career, Jessie was instrumental in helping to get the first minimum wage for women in the U.S., setting up the Pulitzer School of Journalism, single-handedly exposed the “meat packers” monopoly and was the first woman lobbyist in D.C. Inspirational! Having used her voice for suffrage and liberation, Jessie later taught the art of public speaking to thousands of women in the U.S. and England.
