We held our Music Fundraiser this Friday in The Garage, Swansea, in aid of the Swansea Women’s Centre (which has recently revamped its website!). As well as some excellent music, we had delicious vegan cupcakes, a raffle, a feminist disco, and the newly released SFN zine Pandora Press for sale (if you couldn’t make the event but would still like a copy of Pandora Press, get in touch with Team Zine at pandorapresszineATgmail.com to see if we can post you a copy)!
An excellent evening was had by all, and our event managed to raise close to £500 for the Women’s Centre! Pats on the back all round, girls!
Pandora Press is now looking for submissions for its second issue! The theme is sex.

Sex in culture

Sex and religion
Gender and/or sexual identity
Sex and love/relationships
Sex throughout history
Social attitudes to sex
Prejudices surrounding sex
Sex for sale: pornography/prostitution
And anything else you can think of!
As well as general articles, we need the following submissions, which will not need to fit into the issue’s theme:
