HYSTERIA is a non-profit radical feminist periodical and platform. It grew out of feminist discussions and concerns in the Feminist Society at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). The periodical strives to expose power relations that have become naturalised and entrenched. It believes that feminism is a universal concern and not reserved for a selected few. Therefore, HYSTERIA harbours multiple streams of feminisms. HYSTERIA starkly opposes ideologies, philosophies, and belief-systems that have generated the fantasy of feminism as a property, commodity or craze and believes that these ideas reproduce marginalisation, deprivation and inequity.
HYSTERIA is currently selling its second issue themed ‘Roles & Rules’, which includes contributions from artists, poets, activists and scholars such as The Guerrilla Girls, Christina Cooke and Fuambai Sia Ahmadu.
In order to continue its fierce fight in the name of feminisms, HYSTERIA is raising money via this Kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/829143091/hysteria-press
The money raised will go directly towards the printing of HYSTERIA #3 ‘Abjection’.
