no place for a lady: contemplating online sexism and misogyny

Ally Van Schilt
One comment

A recent social experiment which took place on subreddit TwoXChromosomes, a forum related to gender and intended for women’s perspectives, saw a man set up a female profile in order to prove his preconceived notion that women ‘have it easy’ on dating sites. Unsurprisingly, the results of this social experiment caused the man to have…

review: kiss me first

Veronica Sullivan
No comments

Reading Lottie Moggach’s debut novel Kiss Me First is like experiencing an extended claustrophobic fever-dream. From the perspective of an intense and unreliable narrator, this slow-burning novel explores obsession, connection, loneliness and identity, all through the mode of online communication. Leila is an intelligent, antisocial and reclusive young woman who lacks empathy or self-awareness. Following…

literature & technology: maybe next year, NaNoWriMo

Raelke Grimmer

I know I said writing is all about finding time to write. I wrote that I would do this, despite all my other commitments for the month of November, as I can’t call myself a writer unless I make the effort to find the time to write. Well, okay – I won’t call myself a…

Raelke Grimmer
No comments

I’ve come to the realisation that taking part in NaNoWriMo as a uni student is not the best idea. November is the month where final assignments are due and the end-of-semester frenzy kicks into gear. It is also the month where summer days start filling the week with wonderful regularity and, to top it all…

speaking up is hard to do: tips for surviving a verbal showdown

Shannon Clarke

A lot goes into the decision to raise my hand and speak in lecture. Have I thought through what I want to say? How much will have I have to project to be heard (since I prefer not to sit where people can see me, or where I’ll be in the way)?  Is what I’m…

(Cartoon by Judy Horacek) One thing I am certain of is that what women want has changed. It has to have. We grew up in a different world to that of our mothers and grandmothers, and the options open to us would be almost unrecognisable to them. I hate to get Dr Phil on you…

online dating and feminism

Sonya Krzywoszyja

I have recently ventured into the world of online dating. It is my very first foray into the world. It’s … different. I think there’s far less of a stigma nowadays than there might have been when it first started, but it’s still there. It’s something I’ve been putting off for years because, I guess,…
