WIHMX | 10th Women in Horror Month!

Happy February! It's a pretty groovy month for me, and I'm very much excited about Valentine's Day, my 3-year Vegan Anniversary, and most of all, Women in Horror Month! This February is the 10th international Women in Horror Month, and I'm thrilled to be joining in with some extra horror posts and celebration.


What is Women in Horror Month? Like everything else, women are often overlooked in the world of horror. WIHM is a grassroots organisation that aims to celebrate and uplift women who contribute to the horror industry. Women add to the magic of horror in a huge amount of different ways, from hobbyist bloggers like me, to wonderfully creative small business owners, and all the way through to the Hollywood icons we know and love, and women behind the scenes that make it happen. WIHM promotes, honours, and connects these women, through their social medias, blog, and various events throughout the year.

The best thing about WIHM is that it strives to be as inclusive as possible, elevating the voices of women of colour, LGBTQIA+ women, and women from diverse backgrounds. You don't have to be a fancy film executive to get involved! WIHM promotes and encourages DIY events and fledgling creatives, valuing each contribution. You can find out how to join in here. Even if horror isn't your thing, you can give a nod to WIHM by joining in with their annual blood drive and donating life saving blood at your local donation centre. 

This WIHM, I'm going to be posting some horror fiction and some extra horror-themed posts, naturally. I'm also curating a couple of posts featuring women who love horror, and women icons in horror so if you'd like to join in, then send me an email (cookiesandkiah@gmail.com)! I'm also looking forward to joining Liverpool Horror Club at their 'Horror is No Place for a Lady' event and meeting some fellow women of horror!

Are you celebrating Women in Horror Month? I'd love to hear all about it!
