The Editors of the new feminist theory book Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters are looking for scholarly, creative non-fiction, fiction, and short stories that offer a unique perspective on women. Our previous CFP asked for essays that explored how women have served as the oppressive hand in the lives of their sisters. In addition to those essays, we are now looking for writing that examines women in the following contexts: female relationships; negative or positive perceptions of women; mothers and daughters; sisters; lesbian politics and relationships; perceptions of the female body; modern day feminism and womanism; female political and personal power; women in music and entertainment.
