A Feminist Writing Competition…

Slut shaming. Women in movies. Online bomb threats. Impossible Disney princesses and skewed beauty standards. The glass ceiling for women in everything from banking to comedy. Being told it’s, uh, you know, dude, a little bit uncool to call yourself a feminist. Feminism is prevalent in all aspects of society and it affects, ooh, pretty much 100% of the population!

This year’s FEMFLASH 2013 is a flash fiction writing competition celebrating feminism today. Winners receive wealth, fame and a 1 year digital subscription to BUST Magazine. This competition is open to people of all genders. Global entries welcome.
