Eden Gillespie
One comment

I was having dinner in a cosy, welcoming pub with my family when a loud voice, belonging to the burly man seated behind us, interrupted our conversation. He was with a young couple, aged about 30, and their two young boys who had long hair and looked around the ages of eight and six. Each…

vale, zoo weekly

Eden Faithfull
No comments

Beloved friend of curious fourteen year olds and misogynistic chauvinists alike, we bid a snivelling farewell to Zoo Weekly. Zoo’s decline was a slow and agonising one, suffering first from a terrible case of plummeting sales numbers. The magazine’s publisher, Bauer Media Group, attempted to treat the immediate symptoms by removing it from the ABC…

Sarah Randall
No comments

In my experiences of working in retail, I’ve been pretty fortunate in regards to sexism. Apart from a few stand-out occurrences, most of my working retail life has been sexism-free, at least on the surface. However, the few times when I have been made to feel uncomfortable – because I happen to identify as female…

S. Makai Andrews
One comment

As a daughter that was raised on yearly Super Bowl parties, complete with pounds of guacamole and endless mounds of wings, available in every heat level desirable, it’s no surprise that I was a little disappointed when I wasn’t at home to partake in the action this year. Many weeks have past since that weekend…

‘Let them buy petrol’ The line makes little, if any, sense. The corresponding image is, sadly, a bit dumb for Greens party MP Adam Bandt.
