Produced on Ngunnawal and Ngambri land.
By women-identifying, femme-aligned, non-binary and genderqueer* folk.
About everything, for everyone.
Bossy is ANU’s feminist publication, with online and print platforms, which strives to empower contributors and educate the community.
Bossy was founded in 2015 as a branch of the ANU Women’s Department.
We accept submissions from women-identifying, femme-aligned, non-binary and genderqueer* people who are ANU students, staff members and alumni.
Though Bossy only accepts submissions from a select contributor base, we produce content for everyone. We publish content about everything (you would be surprised) in all the styles you could imagine: reviews, poetry, long-form fiction, interviews, memoirs, satire, open letters, opinion pieces and visuals galore.
When sourcing content, however, we always have the following aims in sight.
- To publish content that is different, interesting and relevant for all our readers.
- To advocate for gender equity.
- To educate as many people we can about intersectionality and intersectional feminism.
- To remove the stigma that has become attached to the word feminism.
- To shed light on the realities that marginalised members of our community face each and every day, especially those who are Indigenous, disabled, TISGD, internationally-based or people of colour.
- To create a space where our contributors can speak loudly, proudly and without apology.
