Feminist Spaces Summer 2023: her body

Feminist Spaces is embodying a theme this year: her body. Her body takes up space. Her body is objectified. Her body has experienced assault. Her body is motherhood. Her body is medically undervalued. Her body has lost its autonomy. Her body has a voice. We are looking for submissions that affirm, challenge, question, and manifest the idea of her body in an original and provoking manner. Follow the theme to your creative ability. Or don’t. ​

Feminist Spaces has a new editorial team! We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting general submissions for our next issue.
