Offer: Call For Contributions/Poets: Make Every Woman Count: Women's Day

Make Every Woman Count, an organization dedicated to empowering women and girls in Africa, would like you to join its Women’s Day activities. Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8th, first began at the turn of the beginning of the 20th century in industrialized countries born out of women’s struggle to be treated equally to men in society. Throughout the years it has grown to become a day of recognition and celebration of women’s achievements and struggles around the world. Through poetry MEWC would like commemorate Women’s Day. Deadline for submissions: February 24, 2012.

And MEWM would like you to be the poets! Through poetry let us reflect on this year’s Women’s Day, what it represents, and this year’s theme: “Connecting girls, inspiring futures.” According to International Women’s Day website, “if every International Women's Day event held in 2012 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.”
MEWC will accept poems by African women and girls and those interested in women’s rights in Africa in a poetry style of their choosing. No prior experience with professional writing is necessary, however please familiarize yourself with the MEWC website and its mandate.

All submissions must be made to Tanya at tanya@makeeverywomancount.org by Friday 24 February. They should include a photo of yourself and a brief biography. The chosen poems will be published on Women’s Day, 8 March. Please feel free to email Tanya at the above address with any questions.
