Lucky me: I received a copy of Issue 2 of Fat Quarter magazine, a slim but glossy ‘countercultural ladies mag’ which is sister publication to the blog/website.
This issue, which looks as stylish as ever, has a ‘women as warriors’ theme, featuring interviews with artists and musicians including She Makes War; Good Wives and Warriors, and Warpaint.
It also features a short story by Michele Roberts, an outsider’s view of gender relations in Japan, a piece on ethical fashion and a story on the ‘real’ JT Leroy.
The magazine also features several interesting book and music reviews.
I also really loved the nod to feminism in the photo shoot for the ‘1 Afternoon: 1 Skirt’ piece. I won’t spoil it for you – get your own copy here!
