Woman Scream Festival, as part of the institutions that collaborate with the initiatives of Action Coalitions for Generation Equality by UN Women, opens its second international call for submission for female poetry. The Woman Scream (Grito de Mujer®) cause celebrates its 13th anniversary of creation since 2011, for this reason, we will be creating a special poetry anthology under the theme “Mother of the Earth”. A compilation of poetry in tribute to rural women, farmland women and their rights and an homage to the hundreds of women activists who have raised their voices, suffered abuse or lost their lives standing up for environmental rights.

Woman Scream in its altruistic project with social mission that unites voices of the world against women violence through poetry and arts and it’s celebrated in over 30 countries during the month of march, to raise awareness about women/girls’ rights, self-esteem and abuse prevention.

The submitted poems will be selected based on quality, relevance to the subject and originality. We hope to receive powerful women voices to scream of behalf those who cannot speak up or have lost their own.
