I was kicking around an idea I had on Akira Hokuto as a feminist icon. She’s a legendary Japanese pro-wrestler who’s been in some of the best women’s matches of all time.
As luck should have it, Femmezuigiri — a feminist wrestling site that is “an intersectional collective of fans, wrestlers, journalists and artists who’ve come together to make wrestling a more inclusive space for women and marginalized people” — had an open call for submissions.
So I submitted.
And they published my piece!!! Wahoo!!!
Read it. Or Akira will haunt you in your dreams bwaahahahaha!: http://www.femmezuigiri.com/akira-hokuto-defying-traditions-and-societal-norms/
Wahoo!! I’m published!!
