The Editors are seeking essays that examine the ways that women from around the world have served as the oppressive hand in the lives of other women. In this new feminist theory text entitled Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters, the book’s ultimate goal is to discuss, explain, and explore the following areas of concern: how women were prevented from being helpful to their sisters; how they may have been encouraged to dismiss woman-centered calls for equality, political clout, or sexual power; or when and how some women were actually forced to turn their backs on their sisters as a means of protecting themselves and what little power they actually possessed. The book will address these concepts in the following categories: religion, race, politics, literature, popular culture, music, media, and history.

Essays submitted should clearly identify with one of the above areas of concern and explore its position(s) through one of the aforementioned categories. Authors are allowed to submit in more than one category.
