In July this year I received an email from The Feminist Times, stating that they had financial concerns and asking whether I’d be willing, as a one-off, to contribute something for free (I’d written several paid articles before).
The email included the following line:
This is a chance to write ANYTHING you want to. Stuff no one else will publish.
So I decided to write about inclusion and exclusion, both in terms of physical space and in terms of definition, as both seem to me a vitally important when attempting to establish both women’s humanity and their basic safety. I expressed what I truly felt, sent off the article and waited, knowing that while it might be controversial, I had been given free rein to write ANYTHING (their caps, not mine).
Thanks for this. For obvious reasons I’ll have to run it past […] when we’re both back in the office together on Monday…
