Attention students and academics! Of Another Fashion, a Tumblr started by Threadbared's Minh-ha Pham to archive the overlooked fashion of American women of color, is now available on the academic search engine WorldCat.
The Red Issue of Bitch is about to hit mailboxes (that means you, 1500 new subscribers!) and now you can get a sneak peek of what's in store on our articles page!
There's "Pink Scare" (by Avital Norman Nathman, illustrated by JooHee Yoon), a feature on the media's growing interest in and —unfortunately—fear of "princess boys."
"Mothers of Intention" (featuring Renee Martin, Veronica Arreola, Arwyn Daemyir, Shay Stewart-Bouley, Deesha Philyaw, illustrated by Jasmine Silver) is a roundtable discussion with five bloggers who are pushing back against what makes a "mommy blogger," and was in fact inspired by commentary on how the article "Mother Huckster" (Primal, #50) did not adequately include the experiences of mom bloggers of color.
And finally, our book feature "Sealing the Deal" (by Jessica Jernigan, illustrated by Beth Austin), details the emerging genre of selkie (read: seal-people!) romance novels. After reading this article, I'm going to be very disappointed if selkies aren't the new vampires.
In our monthly newsletter (sign up on in the sidebar on the right!) we poll Bitch staffers and readers on their top five picks in a given category, posting the results here on the blog. Help us out and give us five, or suggest your own answers in the comments after the jump!
We've been talking about why subscribing to Bitch is important for the past two weeks now, and many of you have responded by buying subscriptions for yourself and others, or joining our B-Hive of sustainers. Thank you! For those of you who haven't gotten around to it yet, today is the last day of our subscription campaign and we're asking for your support one last time.
I won't go into the details of the newsstand industry again (read the past posts linked above for more info), but I will remind you that the best way to get Bitch is to subscribe, ensuring not only that we can continue to print the magazine, but also that Bitch Media receives a much greater portion of the money that you spend to buy it. And, I'll give you yet another compelling reason to subscribe to Bitch or join the B-Hive: mission.
