My daughter and friends have set up a feminist webzine...

and I couldn't be prouder!!

This is one of her articles: belle-jar.com/2012/11/20/the-eternal-paradox-of-the-female-form-2/

but the whole website is great I think. I know I am biased but they are covering such varied topics and a lot of the writing is of quite a high standard. I was never this articulate when I was her age. This is a little bit cheeky, but if any of you would like to indulge her efforts by 'liking' their facebook page, it would be really appreciated.

I will stop gushing now!

Shown her and some of the other writers this thread - they are thrilled!

Brilliant

oh, I love it. It is brilliant.

I loved her comparison of GQ covers - how utterly infuriating is that?!

Oh young feminists just cheer me up so much. I am working with a sweet 18 year old at the moment and she is a feminist vacuum... So depressing

a very good article and the sarcastic little dig at the GQ covered made me chortle. I will look out for this in future. I wish them every success with it.

Loved it, love teeny feminists, they totally rock! I hope they keep writing and blogging and know how cool they are.

And you - Mum - must be a good role model.

Really good stuff OP you must be really proud of her.

HotChoc10 Fri 23-Nov-12 20:45:34

I will pass your kind messages on, she will be thrilled

RichardSimmonsTankTop Fri 23-Nov-12 15:02:41

Fantastic - really articulate and fierce.

AnyFucker Germany Fri 23-Nov-12 14:54:26

That is great stuff

Especially ...

Women have historically been caught in an impossible paradox, the need to simultaneously be the ‘Madonna and the Whore’. Of course you should show off your body for the purpose of gratifying men sexually, that’s what you’re there for, duh! But for God’s sake don’t show off your body for the purpose of gratifying men sexually, you tramp!

Wonderful.

Sorry HotChoc I was being extremely dim and thinking it was Chat. blush

NicholasTeakozy Fri 23-Nov-12 13:39:51

That's a great post. Well written and emotionally involving. I'll send the link to my DDs this evening.

had a read over lunch & really enjoyed it. You must be v proud!

HotChoc10 Fri 23-Nov-12 13:14:11

She's 20, I think the others are all about the same age. Thanks!

Good for them! smile
