THE MEDUSA PROJECT – Feminist Anthology X Close
Currently, she is co-editing a feminist anthology for the 15-year-old Feminist Literary Journal Mookychick namely THE MEDUSA PROJECT – Feminist Anthology. The anthology curates the writing to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the women's suffrage movement
which celebrates the women's right to vote in the United States.
Women have been fighting for so long for their rights. The struggle has become even more crucial in the current political climate. With so many powerful movements spearheaded by women in the last few years and the blatant violation of women’s rights brings out the urgency for women’s equality. Mookychick is calling all the writers of all genders to submit writing which resonates with the feeling of freedom, choice, and equality.
