Interview with founder of Filament – women’s erotica magazine
Summary of story from re/action blog, June 15 2011
Filament is a new women’s erotica magazine aimed at “women who like intelligent thought and hot men” – so I’m guessing there’s a potentially huge market for it.
The re/action blog has caught up with founder and editor Suraya Sidhu Singh, to talk about why she created the magazine, her views on pornography and her feelings about identifying as a feminist.
“To put it really simply, who’s more feminist – a woman who says she’s not a feminist but starts a campaign for universal free childcare, or a woman who wears a T-shirt that says “this is what a feminist looks like”, but does nothing about it?
“So to answer the question, do I identify as a feminist? I don’t know, and I guess it doesn’t matter to me. What matters to me is that I make positive change for women.”
I’ve got my copy on order, and a sizzling review will be following in these pages when it arrives.
If you can’t wait til then, you can order your own copy of Filament from their website.
And if you’re a woman photographer who’s not uncomfortable about photographing naked men (I can hear you all scrabbling for your cameras), or if you want to write for Filament, then get in touch with Suraya via the website.
