For All Women,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf (Hardcover)
I bought this because I'd watched the movie and was blown away. While Ms Shange might have written this for "colored" (meaning African American) women I believe it is applicable to all women of color as well as white women. There are themes to the poem that are capable of reaching across ethnic lines to touch the heart of every woman that reads it.
