Abstract

A magazine created by Colorado College students as part of the course, FG200 Introduction to Feminist Thought, taught by Assistant Professor Heidi Lewis during Block 7, 2013.

Note

“So much of what exists in the magazine world for young to adolescent girls today is focused solely on fashion, music and pop culture. Don’t get me wrong – I love clothes and fashion – but there are also a lot of other things I love, such as expanding my horizons, learning new things, and meeting new people. We know you’re smart, and we know that you have a lot of different interests. Therefore, we wanted to create a space for you that we feel doesn’t exist elsewhere; we wanted to build a magazine that presents issues girls face from unique perspectives and encourages you (our awesome readers) to respond and discuss them with other girls. Scholar bell hooks explains, ‘Small groups remain an important place for education for critical consciousness…an especially important aspect of the small group setting is the emphasis on communicating feminist thinking, feminist theory, in a manner that can be easily understood.’ We want to inform you about subjects that can be interpreted through a feminist lens, for we strongly believe that girls are equal to boys. We want to have a conversation with you, and we want you to be able to interact with each other upon reading each issue. Thus, we have created online forums corresponding to each article within our pages so that you may participate in small group discussions. We welcome your critiques just as much as we welcome your support. We want to hear what YOU have to say.”–Letter from the editor, Annie Ireland
