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, explore and define the importance of women-only spaces for the feminist movement 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.
Currently, the definition of ‘women-only spaces’ is under debate and those that exist are under annihilation by so called “austerity cuts” that are destroying women’s access to refuges and rape crisis centres. But, women only spaces are essential not just for women experiencing male violence. They are an essential space for all women as libraries, sports centres, and community centres.
The proceeds of this book will be used to support this platform covering the costs of hosting and website maintenance and development.

It’s that time of year again when we need to raise money to pay for maintenance, hosting and improvements to the website. Rather than hosting another Go Fund Me, we want to showcase some of the brilliant writers who have joined our feminist and womanist network.
We’re looking for new and old:
- opinion pieces
- short stories
- flash fiction
- book reviews
on the very broad topic of feminism and womanism. There are no other guidelines. We just want to show just how brilliant and inspiring our members are and raise money for the annual fees!
The book will be published by EVB Press.
Deadline for submissions is April 30, 2016.
Please send your submissions to email@example.com
