why did you rebrand from damsels?
our new name cavity better reflects our aim to create an intentional space built for women, gnc, and trans artists. while the term "damsels" was meant to be a reclamation of a limited and colonial trope of the powerless woman, such a reclamation demanded we exist as the derivative of a trope we wish to erode.
the new name better reflects our explicit mission to challenge and change the trends of who dominates the literary canon- whose voices are seen as valuable and worthy. this must involve a rejection of a gender binary.
