Women in Horror Month

February is Women in Horror Month. It is also LGBT History Month and in the States, Black History Month. That’s a whole lot of celebrating going on right there. These month long observances are important as they help shine a light on and give voice to people and communities in our society who are often not only unfairly overlooked, but also too frequently on the receiving end of discrimination and prejudice.

Over the next few weeks, as well as the usual film reviews and wine appreciation, I hope to follow the herd and post a few articles about people who are women and have made important, unusual or interesting contributions to Horror and genre cinema. There’ll also hopefully be a few doffs of the hat to the fact that it’s LGBT History Month.

That’s all for now. Happy Women in Horror Month!
