what is femku?


a feminist haiku, or a haiku written by someone femme-presenting

In September 2017 I coined the term femku in the subtitle of my first book Radical Women: A Book of Femku (out of print). Since then, the term has really stuck with me and I wanted to create a safe space for womxn and non-binary folx to share their work. 

I've always been a feminist. As a twenty-something year old womxn who has suffered from various forms of abuse, womxn's empowerment, equality for all voices, and the fight to acquire basic human rights are extremely important to me.
