Over the course of the weekend, I strayed from my traditional toilet-time reading pile (which usually consists of Lawrence’s works or Donne poetry) for reasons that are still unbeknownst to me, and found myself instead reading what can only be described as ‘chick lit’. The toilet seemed to me to indeed be the only appropriate…

can pinup and feminism go hand in hand?

Kaylia Payne
No comments

I have a confession; one that I never ever thought I would share online, and especially not in the feminist mag that I write for. But at the beginning of last year I entered a pinup competition. Granted, I entered it before I had any real idea of what feminism was, and, like many people,…

The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf is the talk of lip at the moment! Despite it pretty much being required reading for Feminism 101, I only got around to reading The Beauty Myth this past weekend.

Being sucked in by advertising

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

Despite being fully aware of the advertising industry and the clothing industry’s ways of manipulating the consumer, I am still sucked into certain advertising and clothing industry campaigns. For goodness sake, I just got an email from ASOS about 20% off and I clicked straight over without hesitating, just in case I found something, even…

The fashion industry is bored with its own air-brushed perfectionism. Now, gap-toothed models are all the rage, moving away from traditional ideals of beauty to celebrate the authentic and quirky.

These women would rarely be photographed in fashion spreads, but Jodi Bieber’s daring and intimate collection of portraits reveals the very real beauty within each and every one of them.
