With 49 poets from all over Brazil, the anthology is made to meet the woman's need to talk about sex, sexuality, feminine and feminism. According to the organizers, is an opportunity for readers to learn about the female view of sex, pornography, freedom to be and be with one's body. One of the artists featured in the book is Maria Firmina dos Reis, first black woman to publish a novel in the country, "Úrsula", in 1859.
