International Women's Day 2021 - #ChooseToChallenge

Inspired by International Women’s Day, Hip Circle will be publishing a book of women’s voices exploring *any* topic that relates to and challenges gender bias or celebrates women and girls’ achievements. Will you submit YOUR story, poem, essay, or one-act play for consideration? A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes positive change. Let’s all choose to challenge!
