"For Colored Girls" is a series of 20 poems, collectively called a "choreopoem." Shange's poetry expresses many struggles and obstacles that Women may face throughout their lives.
It is performed by a cast of eight women characters, each of whom is known only by a color: ​The poems deal with domestic violence, love, abandonment, rape, and abortion, embodied by each woman's story. The end of the play brings together all of the women for "a laying on of hands," in which Shange evokes the power of womanhood
