In an increasingly isolating and divisive world, Kate calls us back together, challenging us to stand up, speak up, and take up space. Her words make us feel seen at a time when women are increasingly put upon and their attentions increasingly divided. As we add even more titles - teacher, emotional bedrock, stabilizer - to the ones we are already expected to carry - mother, partner, friend - Kate's words build resilience, community, and understanding. Her poems are both cathartic and galvanizing. And her committed following of engaged readers knows this as they continue to share her words with their tribes on social media.
