What Makes You Rebellious?

Ten years ago today, on January 12, 2012, a mysterious journalism project asked writers to submit essays answering the question: What Makes You Rebellious?

Starting on March 8 of that year—International Women’s Day!—the inspiring responses formed the first month of content for Rebellious Magazine for Women.

And a feminist rebellion began.

Ten years later, we find our founding question just as relevant as it was then, and we’d love to hear what you all have to say.

Help Rebellious Magazine celebrate our 10th anniversary with your essays on what makes you rebellious.

The deets:

  • Send us your completed essay of up to 500 words
  • If it’s accepted, your piece will be published in March 2022
  • Rate: $100

Send your essay to info@rebelliousmagazine.com with the subject line “Attn: Anniversary Submission.” The deadline is Friday, February 11, 2022.

Thank you!
