Woman is a word said at times in derogation. For some, a woman is a different animal, alien. The world has had its way with othering women, hiding them in the duties of mother, of wife, of seductress, the one with sin. There are even memes and quotes that state that the word woman means woe to man. Religions all over the world determine woman as second class, subservient, silent, unseen, in the presence of men. Is this what it means to be a woman?

Over the years, women have fought to speak, to function, to be seen in the society, the communities, that they have built on their backs. The International Women’s Day celebration is one of the platforms through which their message can be heard. Praxis Magazine Online is proud to be a part of the amplification of their voices.

In celebration of the day of the woman, Praxis Magazine Online is calling for submissions from all over the world in poetry, short story, creative nonfiction, art and photography.

It is our intent to curate works that explore what is means to be, to live, to love a woman. We want your truth, the lies you tell yourself; your pain, your fears, your courage, your triumphs, etc. Let your work be brave enough to question stereotypes, to upend assumptions, to demand space.

Submission Guidelines

We are accepting electronic submissions via halima@praxismagonline.com
