The International Day of Femslash is an annual celebration of femslash, founded in 2008. The most recent one (the 5th annual) was held on 14th July, 2012. Since 2010, the organisers have also held an online FemSlashCon on the nearest weekend.

The description of the 2011 event:

On the 16th July, 2011, the on-line femslash community is set to celebrate the 4th annual International Day of Femslash; an opportunity to raise its head high and proclaim to the world its delight in all things femslash. So, whether you're a seasoned writer, with hordes of ardent fans, or a timid newcomer, you have the chance to make your voice heard and help put femslash well and truly on the map.

Simply post your stories, videos, graphics, essays, poems or other femslash related works to an archive, community, group or forum on 16th July, 2011, to show your support. Where you choose to post your creative efforts is up to you; although, we do hope to gather together an extensive list of web-sites, lj communities, Yahoo Groups and forums which support our efforts, but feel free to post widely to wherever femslash is welcome.

For too many years, femslash has been treated as the distant cousin to the het and slash king and queen of fandom, so this is our opportunity to demonstrate to ourselves, as much as anyone else, that we are a force to be reckoned with.[1]
