Submissions are open for the Feminist Futures essay collection!

Feminist Analysis web-01

Are you a student at King's College London? Submit your essay applying a feminist analysis to any subject for your chance to win and have your essay published!

In collaboration with the Gender Studies Network and Feminist Perspectives, the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership are inviting submissions to the "Feminist Analysis" essay prize. This is open to all King's College London undergraduate and postgraduate students, and essays should apply a feminist analysis to any subject, within any degree programme at King's.

Submissions will be judged on the depth and originality of the feminist analysis applied. An expert team consisting of representatives from the Gender Studies Network, the Global Institute for Women's Leadership, and Feminist Perspectives – an editorial collective of postgraduate students – will judge submissions.

The three winning essays will be published as part of Feminist Perspectives, in short form on the Global Institute for Women's Leadership’s blog, and as a published collection. The winners will be invited to a prize-giving event with a guest speaker and the date for this will be announced after the winners are selected. 

Prizes will be awarded as book vouchers:

  • 1st Prize £100
  • 2nd Prize £50
  • 3rd Prize £25

Essays must have been submitted to a King's College London degree programme. Submissions should be made by copying in the course director and including the essay mark. The deadline for submission is Friday 15 December 2023. Submissions should be sent by email to with ‘Feminist Analysis Essay Prize’ as the subject line.

Gender Studies at King’s is a network that brings together scholars and students across King's – whose research and teaching examine the influence of gender relations. They host a mailing list which publicises relevant events and provides a platform for discussion about gender in research and teaching.

Feminist Perspectives is a blog created to publish research-based work – like academic research and think pieces – and art-based projects that use gender as a category of analysis or explore it as part of a creative process. It aims to bring together students, scholars, artists and activists and to create an outlet to discuss gender from a multidisciplinary and intersectional perspective.
