Women of all ages. This is because flappers are female symbols in the same way as female warriors, female nurses, and female farmers. They are symbols that represent a diversity of human experiences, including female empowerment, the rights and interests of women, and the importance of being able to get a job when you are ready.
What is an emo girl? EMO Girls is for girls who don’t like their bodies, but still aspire to them. These girls have learned how to get into the world, find their place within the community, make friends and have a sense of self-worth. EMOGirls is a space for young women with similar desires and interests to celebrate and nurture themselves. There are no limitations to who gets into the EMO girls community.
Who are the authors of Emo Girl? We are Kristi Davis (Duke University), Christina Tullman (Michigan State University), and Stephanie Clements (St. John’s University). We are students in the Psychology Department at Duke University with a major in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies. We are all in our 20s, and we come from a variety of racial backgrounds and socio-economic experiences.
What is the Emo Girl project? We are creating an anthology of short stories by young women who have been identified to be “emotional emo.” We hope to help spark a discussion about emotion and emotions in young and middle adult women that we hope readers will provide suggestions. The stories in the anthology may be in the form of poetry or fiction, based on the premise that Emo Girls are emo. Each story in the anthology will be a separate work but will feature a theme based around emotions. While other stories in the anthology may explore themes such as sexuality, sexuality without a narrative, or romantic relationships, and/or the politics of sex and intimacy among young women, we will include an excerpt from an author’s own collection of stories.
Why is my writing good? Every story in Emo Girl is going to be a story, because we are all storytellers. However, we also care about telling stories based on emotion and theme. While readers may not be able to help us choose some or even all of the stories, the ideas we have for each story are going to be compelling.
Where can I get the anthology? We will offer them at shows and bookstores in March 2012. We’re also looking for ways to work with other social movements including Occupy Wall Street, the fight for immigrant
