Sexism in Punk, Activist and Radical Communities
Is accepting submissions . . .

Some ideas (by no means limited to):
personal stories
art/creative writing/poetry
histories and institutional memories (stories about your scene/community)

body image
sexism and sexual harassment at activist gatherings
standing up to the patriarchy through art, organizing, music, zines etc.

sexism and sexual harassment in the activist community that formed in New Orleans after Katrina
'manarchism': who has access and who sets the group agenda
radicalism as a means of empowerment vs. scene cred dictating values and new social norms
