The Gentlewoman – a magazine

This is my magazine crush du jour, the other is Grey magazine, which I will post on later in the year. The Gentlewoman comes out twice a year, its fat, dense with intelligent writing and wonderful images. The latest issue has an interview – via email – with the elusive Elena Ferrante, in it she explains her thoughts on feminism today…

” I believe all of us, of whatever age, are still in the thick of the battle. The conflict will be long, and even if were think we have left behind the culture and language of patriarchal society once and for all, we just have to look at the world in its entirety to understand that the conflict is far from over and that everything we have gained can still be lost.”

Don’t be put off by the image of Kirsten Dunst on the cover this is not a celebrity mag.
