Welcome to the Women In Horror blog! My name is Claire Fitzpatrick, and I established this blog to celebrate and promote women in horror.

Each post will feature a post delving into the thought processes, passions, challenges of women, and what makes their art unique. Posts will show appreciation for women in horror, and their beautiful, horrifying, terribly amazing art.

Women In Horror recognises the talented women who have shaped the horror genre as it is today. Women In Horror will not promote unfounded sexism in men,but encourage and embrace gender equality in horror.

If you are interested in submitting an article, sharing an interview, or hosting a blog post of your own work, please send a message through the contact page.

Viva la resistance!
