Calling for Submissions – Gender Month


In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8, We Matter Media will be featuring stories throughout March that explore the theme of gender.

We’re looking for features, interviews, videos, comics, poems, fiction and audio that bring to light any of the myriad of issues associated with being male, female or somewhere in between. We’re seeking stories about social roles, gender identity and much more.

Can men be feminists?

Is growing up in a gender-neutral environment liberating or confusing?

Who is speaking out about the gender divide? Who is trying to make changes? Is there such a thing?

What’s the significance of genres like chick-lit and mummy blogs?

Do equity, equality, safety and equal development opportunities exist between sexes?

If you’ve come across something in the media that made you think about the similarities or differences between genders or if you feel that there are gaping holes and issues going unaddressed, we’d like to hear from you. Are the attitudes and prejudices highlighted in the media a fair representation of what it’s like living as a man or a woman today?

Please send story ideas and drafts to features[at] by Sunday 3rd March.
