Welcome to A Room of Our Own
A Feminist/ Womanist Network
A Room of Our Own: A Feminist/ Womanist Network is a women-only multi-media platform created to share women’s writing, art, music, vlogs, campaigns and other creations. 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.
Women only spaces are a fundamental part of the feminist movement and represent women’s right to self-determination and liberation. We’re collecting short stories, poetry, and essays that illustrate and explore what we mean as a ‘woman only space’ and the importance of these spaces for the feminist and womanist movements and women in general: as a space which prioritises women’s voices over mens and that refuses to allow men to dictate the terms of the conversation.
Submission deadline: August 30, 2019

“The love expressed between women is particular and powerful because we have had to love in order to live; love has been our survival,”
