Welcome to A Room of Our Own
A Feminist/ Womanist Network
A Room of Our Own: A Feminist/ Womanist Network is a trans-inclusive, women-only blogging platform created to share women’s writing, art, experiences and musings. It was created both to combat cultural femicide – the term coined by feminist writer Bidisha to define the erasure of women from politics, art, and culture – and celebrate women’s creativity in a space without men.
In the context of the on-going refugee crisis, Brexit, and the rise in racist hate crime that has come in it’s wake we are particularly interested in recognising women whose campaigning addresses violence against Black and minority ethnic women.Read more
This anthology is a collection of essays, poetry, and short stories written by members of our Feminist & Womanist network . The proceeds of this book will be used to support this platform covering the costs of hosting and website maintenance and development.
