Stylist goes Feminist!

I don’t know about you but for me, being on the London Underground in rush hour, in the midst of summer, is my idea of hell. A combination of the raging heat, musty smell and dirty carriages does not always leave me a happy passenger. Hurrah then for Stylist, the only free publication that’s sure to perk up my commute into work every day.

Stylist is a free publication with a difference, focusing not on typical tube fodder (see: property sales, sports, or endless gardening products…) but instead offering fabulous fashion straight from the catwalk, health and beauty advice, and in this month’s issue, a sassy feminist feature!

The War on Women focuses on many of the problems facing females worldwide today, including: sex slavery, genital mutilation, rape, unequal pay, media sexualisation and gendercide.

As well as including sensitively handled articles by Kate Graham, the feature also includes a list of ways the reader can proactively involve themselves in fighting the battle for equality.

It was refreshing and uplifting (which obviously, we ladies here approve of!) to see Kate Graham’s pro-women feature in such a widely circulating publication, so much so that I would like to share it with those who may not have had a chance to read it yet. The article, and indeed the whole magazine, can be viewed online for free on the Stylist website here, to skip forward to The War on Women please go to pages 40-41.
