And that's not all!! One of their admins are having a contest as well! The Women in War Contest
by doughboycafeInfo and Rules:
Summer Contest: Women in WarAlright guys, here is the deal. I haven't done my yearly contest so here it is. You want to watch this journal keenly because the prize list is going to expand rapidly after today.Rules: Your story must focus on a woman in war. Cast does not have to be all women. Stories will be judged on mostly two things (besides the obvious of grammar and spelling): accuracy, and if it is actually a story. Do not write an event. Write a story which has a beginning, middle, and end with a character that grows or changes or chooses not to. All time periods acceptable. At least 2 non wikipedia sources linked in your artist comment to see if your story is accurate. You may use an existing real person (though you better do the research on that person!) or make up your own character.Info: Prose and Poetry accepted. The length limit for prose is 3,000 words. The line limit for poetry is 150 lines. Contest will run from today, August 1, to August 31. Contest is open to all of DeviantArt.
The subject is women in war. I don't see enough of this in military fiction at all, let alone on dA, so I'm running a contest for it. I want realistic, historically accurate portrayals of women's contributions to war efforts, be they soldiers or pilots, camp followers, auxiliaries, or on the homefront. There are plenty of cool things to choose from, from female ambulance drivers in WWI, the Night Witches of WWII, Jean d'Arc herself if you want.
Go check out Women Warriors if you really want a list but be careful, it might be too kick ass and overwhelm you.
The point is, women were all over war from the beginning of time. You would never find a camp that had no women in it, filling various roles, and it is absurd to say war just didn't affect them as
