‘Bold Women Write Back’ in this special issue of eTropic!

The last issue for 2017 follows in the wake of the year’s witnessing of international Women’s Marches - with their pink pussy hats – across many parts of the globe, and the 2017 International Women’s Day theme ‘Be Bold for Change’. The issue asks, in a world where women are still excluded from citizen participation, is there a new role for resistance through art and literature? For women of the tropics in particular, in what ways can writing, art, and academic work be bold in helping make needed changes? For women more broadly, what does it mean to be bold right now as oppression intersects race, sex, class, and religion in a world that is repealing rights and advances?
