WOMXN by Nooshin “Dr. V” Valizadeh


WOMXN is a spoken word poetry compilation reflecting the multiple layers of experience and identity that embody who the WOMXN is and can be. The X is in protest and resistance to the term’s patriarchal roots that remain relevant today, as our existence is only humanized when imagined as the extension of a man – a wife, sister or daughter, rather than as individuals with bodies and souls worthy of justice and equal in human value. The author’s shared histories are presented in the form of chapters to include ways in which WOMXN can be emotionally unhoused in exile, empowered in solidarity and more.

There will always be a dominant story – this book is a way to make room for the othered story – the counterstory – in poetry.
