Finding my Way to Feminism

First published in issue one of Cinders Magazine

Feminism is still a tricky word for some people – that’s a fact that we at Cinders would love to change. Here, editor Méabh McDonnell talks about her journey to becoming a feminist.

The more people who realise that Feminism merely means believing that women deserve equal treatment, respect and rights to men, the better. We need to de-mystify the word. We also need to acknowledge the importance of intersectionality, the idea that some women have more to deal with than others. While you may feel that feminism has done its job for you, it may not for your LGBTQIA+ friend, your POC colleague, or your non-cisgendered idol. Continue reading “Finding my Way to Feminism”

Hi Folks, Cinders second issue is ready to go and we are very pleased to announce that it will launch on February 13th, taking inspiration from Parks and Recreation’s Galentines Day celebrations!

So make sure to log on here and celebrate Galentines by reading the newest copy of Cinders. Where we celebrate all of the fantastic ladies of cinema both now – and some a few years old!

We also dive into our Gilmore Girls Revival reactions, read some great new books and celebrate some great YouTube crafters who could show you how to make some great Galentines day gifts!

 

See Cinders Launch here!

Here in Cinders towers we’re knee deep in issue 2 of Cinders magazine – out on February 13th! But as a treat for those of you who were unable to attend the launch we have a video to make it seem as though you were there!

Many thanks to mcdonnellhouse productions for the filming and editing!

Enjoy!

We also have co-editor Grainne Coyne’s speech which she was unable to deliver on the night but are very happy to be able to share it here!

 To say I was delighted when Meabh asked last September if I would like to embark on the amazing magazine that is Cinders is an understatement. The first issue is full of everything a fangirl can dream of as well as poetry, art, mental health and feminism….the list is endless, I am only jealous I didn’t have a copy of Cinders when I was a teenager, but I am glad that young women get to experience Cinders today. I am sorry I can’t be there this evening, but I am so honoured that I get to be a part of the amazing project that is Cinders. I am so happy that I get to help spread a positive message out there for so many young women.  – Grainne Coyne
