Women in Horror Recognition Month
Every February, the Viscera organization promotes "Women in Horror Recognition Month." The goal is to assist underrepresented female genre artists. Females working in the horror genre (whether writers, artists, filmmakers, F/X creators or set designers) are assisted in finding opportunities, exposure, and education. WIHM works to promote events, printed material, articles, interviews, and offer online support.
This is SUCH a cool undertaking. I think it's in its third or fourth year.
Not much is going on on the website at the moment (it still lists 2012 events), but a lot is going on over at their Facebook and Twitter streams. Visit the #WIHM hashtag on Twitter to join the conversation.
