April 24, 2009 - PRLog -- Sa (www.savadati.com), a feminist portal is looking for contributors. Sa is an attempt to create a platform for the female voice in India and has published since January 2009, over 60 articles focussing on violence against women. Sa currently features the work of six contributors – five of them writers, and one artist. They have published articles on women in politics and media, globalization and development, violence and crime, women and society, humour, literature and the performing arts and also feminist fiction and poetry.
The articles published on Sa have been widely read and appreciated and find readers in several cities in India, the USA, and Europe. Further, two articles have also been republished in leading Indian dailies in editorial sections. Aishwarya Iyer, a regular contributor says she enjoys writing for Sa, as “all the articles found here are not preachy or loaded with too much information and melodrama. The laid back attitude makes the website infinitely more readable than other feminist websites.”
Sa is looking for contributors who are committed to the cause of women’s empowerment and can enrich the content of the webzine through well-researched articles in any of the broad categories mentioned above. Anyone with experience in the area of women’s empowerment is especially welcome. Artists, particularly cartoonists are also welcome to apply. Any prospective contributors are encouraged to read the content of the website and apply here.

Sa is a an independent feminist webzine that publishes writing on violence against women, development, women’s political participation and representation in the media. We believe that speaking out and breaking the silence on gender and women’s issues is Step One in the long journey towards equality. We seek to be an honest and intelligent observer of society and development and report on what we see, as feminists. This we do through well-researched articles on specific and topical issues, witty commentary on society and media, reviews and analysis of literature centred on women and interviews and profiles of people actually working in the area of gender and women’s development.
