SPECIAL EDITION - What Women Need- "Women on Politics"

Adanna dedicates its next print issue to What Women Need for a "Women on Politics" special edition in reflection of American culture and society looking back on the last four years and what our hopes and dreams are for the next four years to come.  While we reflect on the many achievements women have made in politics and leadership we also want to address former and new obstacles. We seek a representative voice of all women, in all walks and stages of life, at all levels of leadership from motherhood to office. We seek stories, essay, and poetry that tell the story of tribulation and triumph and speak to the current political climate.  Works that reflect hate rhetoric or speech will not be considered. 

Reading period will be Nov. 10th - Dec. 31st
