Dear Damsels,

The theme for April is TRIBE. A marker of where you’re from; a feeling of where you belong.

Girl gangs, collectives, friends-since-school, family: it can be Whatsapp-group intense, supportive from a quiet distance, or something never spoken but ever present.

It’s who ties together the separate parts of you; who’s there to witness your becoming. Belonging to you as much as you belong to them.

It’s comfort, it’s inspiration, it’s home. It’s strength in numbers.

Whatever changes you make, it’s always there to return to.

We want to hear who and what makes you, you.
