Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters
to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether
they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear
that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.
WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound,
The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. The database
(http://womeninhorrormonth.com/events)—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base--
actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of
creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.
This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as we believe the horror genre should be.
From Mary Shelley to Anne Rice, female horror writers have been around for generations. This month is all about celebrating female horror writers and strong female leads in horror stories. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer and hopefully, you will find a few new books to add to your collection.
Below is our schedule for the month.
