“The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet,” wrote the legendary poet, essayist, and feminist Adrienne Rich. An early proponent of intersectionality (before the term was coined), Rich’s ideas have profoundly shaped feminism. In celebration of “Essential Essays,” a new collection of Rich’s work edited by poet-scholar Sandra Gilbert, join a panel of trailblazing writers and thinkers—Rich’s friends, colleagues, literary and scholarly descendents, and longtime editor—as they pay homage to Rich’s legacy and consider her ideas today.
