Scarlet Magazine

Starting this week and continuing through the spring we'll be putting up weekly postings by members of the Scarlet staff. Suri starts us off this week: 

For those of you who attended the recent workshop "empowerment through feminist publication" my reflection will not come as a surprise. I wrote it as a part of my application for Smith College. The prompt was about the relevancy of women's education. I do, or course, believe in its importance but I couldn't really articulate why until I attended the workshop. So I suppose Dare (our editor) could say "mission accomplished". I just wanted to say how inspiring it was to watch so many girls become vocal and come up with ideas for the magazine. Here it is:

I recently attended a workshop hosted by my school called "empowerment through feminist publication". The focus of the workshop was to prepare girls in grades seven through twelve to write for a school publication. The publication is a feminist magazine that focuses on encouraging girls to embrace an alternative view of womanhood from that of the popular media. I have been a contributor for the magazine over the past few years.  I was amazed by the enthusiasm and productivity that each girl showed. It is truly incredible to watch how women and girls interact in an academic setting I truly led me to believe that women's education is not only relevant but also inspiring.

He even threads the subtle lexicon of tie patterns—from “amoeba-like foulard blobs” (Upper), signal flags (Upper Middle), musical notes (sliding downward), to OH HELL, IT’S MONDAY (quite low), with special horror reserved for the southwestern bola (“Says the bola, ‘The person wearing me is a child of nature, even though actually eighty years old’”).

Fussell’s methodology settles into the brain like a virus; one soon cannot stop nanocategorizing one’s world. A quarter century later, most of Fussell’s categories live on—if with some fiscal damage.
