Call for Submissions 2021


For Volume 8 of the F-Word, we are accepting submissions on how the following theme speaks to you:

Imagining Feminist Futures in a Post Pandemic World: Action, Collaboration, Equality and Healing


Since the start of this pandemic, we have been brought face to face with the negative impacts of the current structures, systems, and ways of thinking and what needs to change.

As we continue to move through the impacts of the pandemic, what feminist future do you hope for? Not only do we have a chance to challenge what has come before us, but we also have the opportunity to think beyond what we currently see. What new ways do you imagine of relating to each other as well as the world around us? So, as we start dreaming and imagining a more equitable and compassionate world for all, how do we as young feminists create systems that value and care for everyone? What is your vision and what role do you see feminism playing in a post pandemic world?  What is your idea of a feminist future which is inclusive and intersectional? What does feminist leadership look like in collective healing, equality and intergenerational collaboration? How do you feel about resilience and relationship building? How do you envision the “new normal” through an activist lens? What concrete changes do you see as necessary for a feminist future?
