3. Eshet Chayil Magazine Seeking Submissions (Jerusalem/online)

  • Submissions: sought for special issue on religion, including writing on key female figures in Judaism, Christianity, or Islam, and women’s role in organized religion. The editors are particularly interested in “personal accounts from Orthodox women in hopes to delegitimatize the myths associated with the treatment of women within the Orthodox community,” but state, “secular women may also send their work”
  • Languages: English, Hebrew, French
  • Type: Writing, drawings, photography, cartoons of relevance
  • Contact: submissions@fallopianfalafel.com or click link above

In their own words:

“Fallopian Falafel – אשת חיל is a non-profit, Jerusalem-based feminist zine established in May, 2007. It deals with feminism in Israel, in all its forms of expression (third-wave, riot grrrl, religious movements, etc.), and it aims to spread awareness about the ongoing need for feminism to the Israeli public. It is worth noting that despite its secular leftist nature, the zine is neither anti-religious nor anti-Zionist.”

Good luck!
