100 and 101 Essential Modern Poems by Women

Reginald Gibbons (a poet who teaches at Northwestern University) favorably reviewed 100 Essential Modern Poems by Women in the Chicago Magazine (June 2008).  The book, edited by Joseph Parisi, former editor of Poetry, and Chicago author Kathleen Welton, gives comment on 100 poets.

Other anthologies of poetry written by woman abound, such as Germaine Greer (ed.) 101 Poems by 101 Women (Faber, 2001) reviewed by Adam Newey in New Statesman (December 2001).
