Call for Submissions, Open Rivers: Women & Water

Open Rivers: Rethinking Water, Place & Community invites submissions for our Spring 2022 issue on Women & Water.

In myriad ways, women are connected with water—as scientists, as activists and water protectors, as policymakers, as providers, as researchers, and as artists and storytellers. In the contemporary moment, climate change and disasters affect already compromised water conditions, making these entanglements with water both more complicated and more critical.
