Missy Magazine – the feminist magazine about Pop Culture, Politics and Style.We are writing about transfamilies, sexwork, Kathleen Hanna, pussy-vapour bathing (Mösendampfbäder), fat acceptance, computer games, compatibility, Sofia Coppola, asylum and everyday life, The Knife, anal plugs, cats and men, menstruation in horror movies, armpit hair and Lena Dunham. Crafting and cooking are as well topics as queer pornography or organizations, which are campaigning for safe abortion. All this is done with an attitude, which is constantly questioning the status quo with a big grin. Because we are not (yet) living in an equal society. Because there is a lot to discuss and to change. Feminism is over? We don’t think so. That’s why Missy.
The first issue of Missy Magazine was released on the 20th of October 2008 with an edition of 15.000, which raised meanwhile to 25.000. Since 2008 Missy Magazine is released 4 times a year. http://missy-magazine.de
