discovered from the wonderful and ever-relevant-to-my-interestrubynye
, who tipped me off unto this awesomeness. I figure since this comm is all about fighting sexism in fandom and giving voices to the silenced women of the Star Trek verse, this fest might be relevant to some of our interests:akzseinga
is having a fest celebrating unpopular women
running from this Friday to next Friday.
Fandoms of any size are encouraged, any female character you've seen hate against (even if it's just from a few people) is eligible, and reposting old content appears to be allowed if I'm reading the comments correctly. You can write meta or fic, make graphics, share fanmixes, or basically anything else that's celebrating the female character you've claimed. There is a limit of three claims per language per character (so, three people could create for a character in English, and three more in Spanish, and three more in Russian, etc.)."Note:
The label "unpopular" is somewhat problematic. However, because of the sexism prevalent in fandom, I believe that almost any female character in the 'verse has been "bitchified" in fic and/or meta, or merely ignored, objectified, or silenced. Let's take the power back, shall we? :)
