At last, a shout-out for womxn composersmain
The Boulanger Initiative of Washington DC has just had a board enlargement, according to a press release sent to us.
The BI is ‘a non-profit advocacy organization for womxn composers’.
This is not a misprint.
According to Wikipedia, The term Womxn (/ˈwʊmɪnks/), used by some feminists, especially in the intersectional feminist movement, is one of several alternative spellings of the English word woman. It is used to avoid the spelling woman (which contains and derives from the word men), and to foreground transgender, nonbinary, and women of color.
The person who sent us their board statement signed off as ‘He/Him/His’.
So it goes.
