our work should equip
the next generation of women

this is the legacy we’ll leave behind
Rupi Kaur is probably one of the most well known contemporary female poets. The Indian-born Canadian-based poet mostly writes nano-poems and she started first as an “Instapoet”, her short pieces on love, meaning of life, relationships fit perfectly into an Instagram post.
Her poem “Progress” is about how women’s voice grows stronger with every generation.
