    This contest has been revived and the new thread can be found here, hosted by insufferable;.

    For more information on Mibba’s Contest Revival and judging, please go here


    I don't think a contest like this has ever been done on Mibba and I thought it would be interesting to do something a little different and to encourage the writing and posting of more feminist/girl oriented stories.

    The concept is to write a story with a "feminist" plot. That can mean a million different things, and it's up for your interpretation. It could be about a girl super hero, it could be about a girl who kills her rapist, it could be about a group of sexist men (profiling misogyny in some way); it could be absolutely anything you want, as long as it goes with a general theme of female strength or somehow reflects the effects of sexism. You don't need to identify as a feminist to write a feminist story.

    Rules
    ○ Must somehow involve a feminist/pro-woman theme (whatever that means to you).
    ○ Can be a one-shot or chaptered.
    ○ No maximum word count.
    ○ Minimum of 500 words.
    ○ You can enter as many times as you want.
    ○ Pre-writes are acceptable, but I'd prefer new stories.
    ○ Fanfiction is okay, preferably if the celebrity/character is a woman or girl.

    Brownie Points
    ○ Lesbians!
    ○ Non-white people!
    ○ Women getting revenge on sexist men.
    ○ Female lead.
    ○ If it passes the Bechdel Test.
    ○ Girl unity.
    ○ If the main character identifies as a feminist.
    ○ If it's inspired by music by a female musician/band.

    Deadline
    Let's go ahead and make it my birthday, October 15, 2014. If you end up needing more time, I'll be flexible.

    I would love to participate. Would you mind if my story were to be bilingual? I'd make sure to translate the words to English.
