Editors wanted for feminist music site


the girls are, an online feminist music site, is looking for new editors:

Independent, feminist online music publication thegirlsare.com is undergoing an invigorating makeover after an insanely busy year, and they are looking for exemplary editors to join the already established team of writers and photographers.

The site is looking for a live editor, news editor and features editor to join the burgeoning team of 50+ regional and international contributors to coincide with the re-launch of the website in October. Unashamedly feminist and cutting edge, the head honchos over at the girls are are keen for like-minded individuals to come aboard and help shape the future of this exciting project.

the girls are is an independent, online publication celebrating and supporting women in music: covering everyone from record store clerks and emerging musicians to iconic artists, the girls are aims to act as both a resource and a supportive platform from which artists and contributors alike can gain recognition. Whilst celebrating the achievements of established artists, they also encourage women to embark on their own projects, actively seeking out unsigned acts and promoting grass roots projects.

the girls are was established by editor Annette Barlow in the autumn of 2009 and within a few short months had already gained a loyal following. 2010 saw the girls are help to programme the music at Ladyfest Ten, become a regular on Tom Robinson’s 6 Introducing show, and swell from a team of 10 Londoners to over fifty international contributors.
