FIRST EVER FEMALE POET LAUREATE

Equal Rights, Women's Rights

Congratulations to the first ever female poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy – also the first openly bi-sexual person to be appointed to this prestigious position.

Her rewritings of history, giving women the last word or even a word, in our man centric history have provided me with many laughs as well as poignant thoughts.

I look forward to her rewriting this role.
