HELLE. FEMINISM. ELEPHANT POEM COLORING BOOK by Judy Grahn. [Oakland, CA]: Women's Press Collective . Oblong 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 3/4"), pictorial wraps, Fine. Each page has a few lines of text in a large font, and an illustration in thick black line in a simple almost juvenile style by Helle, Janet, Susan and Gail. Grahn uses the elephant as a symbol of domination and how you can't expect the dominating one to stop on his own "Any more than bankers hand out money... or police put away their pistols." The policeman is portrayed as a pig in uniform. The only way to stop it is for everyone to work together. This poem is from Grahn's first book of poetry "Edward the Dyke" published the year before. Grahn was an important figure in the 1970's feminism and lesbian rights movement. She was a member of the Gay Women's Liberation Group which founded the Woman's Press Collective, an all woman press. She is highly regarded and influential in those movements today. This title is rare and in excellent condition.
