Description

Our third magazine is extra hot and is guaranteed to make your brain bigger. Get a load of this content:

Alexandra Havas kicks things off with an in-conversation between Sasha Jurac (Founder of The QUO) and Noni Cragg (Founder of The Rough Period) where they talk about the new ways Australian women are cutting tape and making a difference in their communities.

Talia Enright has dropped her work on Woolf Pack Zine to do us up some incredible original illustrations to pair with Alexandra’s article, and also with Sarah Widdup’s memoir.

Sarah Widdup’s personal essay is about trying to fit her round peg of autism into the square hole of “work”. Her piece, “A List Of Things To Say If Attacked By A Dog” is a deconstruction of her own daily rituals and a call to question traditional employment environments.

Bri Lee met with Abbey Rich and Catlin Shearer in Abbey’s incredible North Melbourne studio. Bri took pictures and recorded Abbey and Caitlin having a good chat about what it means to pivot within a creative business, burnout, and why they do and don’t get “fashion”.

Angela Serrano modelled the latest activewear from Indigenous Australian label Wild Barra, as photographed by the Image Editor for Archer Magazine, Alexis Desaulniers-Lea. The shoot runs alongside a reflection by Angela about being a curvy woman of colour in the often trim, white-washed world of inner-city yoga.

Sam Zell travelled a few hours out of the city to meet with her mother’s mother – Nan – and they talk about the difference in their lives. Nan was married at 17, had seven children, and Sam has captured her Nan tending the cows on their beautiful acreage.

Van Badham has gathered and profiled five kickass “Union Babes” who are bringing fresh blood and fresh perspectives to the movement. From representing wharfies to prison officers, they are leading the charge to change how women are treated and valued at work.

Victoria McGlynn’s memoir about working for a men’s-only society, The Freemasons, will make you laugh and shudder. “All Squared Away” is Victoria’s attempt to reconcile her feminism with her need to eat and get her stuff out of hoc from Cash Converters.

Jonno Revanche’s work, “Dipping Into Old Rivers / Looking Out And / Peering Back In”, is a photographic essay paired with a personal essay. They consider the creative process while on a roadtrip with a friend, reflecting on truth and honesty in both life and art.

Lisy Kane is one of the Co-Founders of Girl Geek Academy and was the only Australian to be listed on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Gaming list this year. In this profile, Bri talks to Lisy about making sure women are represented in tech and especially in gaming.

Anna Apuli’s illustrations feature throughout the magazine, rendering personalities and profiles in bright lines and colours. Anna also designed the whole thing so she gets infinite gold stars.

Lyneta Darlington identifies as having a “mild” disability, but had not spoken with her mother about it for the first 21 years of her life. In this in-conversation Lyneta reflects on a chat between her friend Yasmin Zaid, and Yasmin’s mother Jillian Zaid, about the unique strains on, and joys of, a mother-daughter relationship that includes disability.

Claire Barnes writes the regular STEMM Trails blog posts for HCwBB and if you’re a fan of that series, you’ll love her new work, “500 Women Scientists: the feminist pro-science, anti-trump movement you really need to know about”. Claire has reported directly from women in STEMM fighting the Trump establishment right now.

 

And our featured artist for this issue is: Melissa Nguyen!

Melissa has created a dozen unique infographics to pair with many of the articles in the magazine. They’re the perfect marriage of form and function – giving you important statistics on issues about women and work, while being good-looking and humorous, just like you.
