In September 2017 I coined the term femku in the subtitle of my first book Radical Women: A Book of Femku. Since then, the term has really stuck with me and I wanted to create a safe space for women to share their work. I’ve always been a feminist. As a twenty-something year old woman who has suffered from various forms of abuse, women’s empowerment is extremely important to me. Although this journal is a home for haiku by women, I believe in equality for men and women as we were created the same, just with a few differences in anatomy.
