    Yes, it will have a bright future if many people agree to use it. I don't. – user140086 Jun 27 '16 at 13:09
  • What do you think? And how will you know what is the best answer to choose from? The person who says yes or the one that says no? – Mari-Lou A Jun 27 '16 at 13:14

Looking at Ngram, the usage of the term "womyn" is still increasing, so it will be probably be used for the foreseeable future, expecially in feminist contexts:


  • women (used chieflyin feminist literature as an alternative spelling to avoid the suggestion of sexism perceived in the sequence m-e-n).

Ngram: womyn.
