Student, Lily Myer's poem on how women take up less space. ("SHRINKING WOMAN")

This reminded me of our talk in class about how men on the train take up a lot more space than women. It also reminded me of "The More You Subtract, The More You Add"- women are expected to be quiet and small or thin while men are expected to be loud, strong and muscular. This young woman totally nails and articulates a topic that is difficult for many. She goes into the impact it has on her family, her self worth, and women.
