Description

The phrase "by, for and about" has served as a basic tenet of cultural policy direction in feminism since the early 1970s. Like "the personal is political" or "global sisterhood" it has operated as a shorthand for certain kinds of thinking about feminist and cultural politics. Unlike the other two, it continues to be used quite widely as a way of guiding practice and shaping our thinking about how women produce culture in feminism. The nineteen pieces in this volume deal with fine art, poetry, fiction, film, and oral history. They talk about the underbelly of creation: the editorial processes and the support and disappointments of community. By For and About is a forum for addressing challenging issues that are both historical and contemporary.
