The Woman Effect/Affected

‌on forgotten/ignored women

As part 7 of 12 of our annual special themed issues series, Digest magazine's "The Woman Effect/Affected" issue wants to know current reflections on the memory of women, currently and in the past.  Women have been allowed varying access to societal power and institutions in comparison to men.  Does this mean women's contributions to societies and cultures are not as valuable as men's influences and efforts?  Consider the women in your life, starting with your mother; what effect have they had on you and your development?  How have women been affected by being devalued throughout histories?  What do you think?   We invite academic, casual, critical, and artistic contributions for all special themed issues.

"The Woman Effect/Affected" comes out annually the first week of March in accordance with National Women's History Month.  Our purpose in offering a broad theme is to not limit the large spectrums of topics and experiences having to do with women's effect and women affected by memory and history.  Thus, if you have something you would like to share and you believe it is connected to this theme, we are excited to hear from you.
