Letter from the Editor

I was stomping around the apartment one day in one of my self-righteous, wounded feminist moods. (Sometimes my inner Andrea Dworkin gets the better of me.) One trip to CVS had sent me over the edge. “Why do magazines have to flaunt half-naked women’s bodies all over them? It’s degrading!” I was fuming.

My boyfriend shrugged. “So start your own,” he replied, simply. “Tscha, yeah, right,” I scoffed. “I’m serious,” he said.

Months later here we are, and I would like to thank my contributors and readers for proving that we are more than what society would have us all believe.
