Maybe because mainstream mags are shit? I couldn't give a monkey's about what nail varnish particular beauty companies are trying to push this month, or how to please my man in bed. Most women's magazines are just trying to sell you things.
And from reading the website, it does sound like Lib is going to have more 'normal' content as well as the specifically feminist stuff - they'll have film, music, book reviews, that sort of thing. I'll be interested to give it a try, anyway.
What a great idea Posie. I'm sure the women doing this one would be able to give you a few pointers for how to set it up. I can't imagine they think their should be the only magazine out there, so then you can cater for even more women.
Alice.... I have a background in publishing, but thanks.
I genuinely think that a feminist magazine would not have a wide appeal and would be hijacked by far left agendas. In order to outweigh printing costs, alone, they would have to have a large circulation, have to be glossy too.
