"Femnista" Celebrates "Star Wars"

With Rogue One due to hit theaters soon, we're focusing our last issue of Femnista on all things Star Wars.  You can find a full list of this issue's articles here.

I chose to write about my favorite character, Han Solo, and how encountering him changed the way I view people and the world.  You can read my article here.

Happy Halloween from Femnista

The 2015 film The Lone Ranger contains a somewhat surprising theme:  cannibalism.  I've explored the way filmmakers used it literally and metaphorically in my Femnista article for Halloween, "Consuming the Past: The Lone Ranger."

This Halloween, the theme is "surreal tales," so if you're looking for something both creepy and thought-provoking to read, there will likely be somethign to interest you.  A list of the issue's articles is here.

Femnista Article on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

The 2015 film The Man from UNCLE stayed remarkably faithful to the 1960s TV series, with one major exception:  the character of Illya Kuryakin.  In my latest Femnista article, "A Tale of Two Illyas," I theorize on why they changed him so much, but kept Napoleon Solo essentially the same.  

The focus for September and October is "Derringers and Fedoras," so visit Femnista for articles on all sorts of spies, assassins, and private eyes.

Femnista Article for July/August 2016

I'm endlessly fascinated by Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet, as you might know by now, since I blog under the pseudonym 'Hamlette' and call my main blog Hamlette's Soliloquy.  I'm pretty sure you can guess what I wrote about for the Shakespeare edition of Femnista.  My article, "We Will Show Our Duty:  The Avenging Sons in Hamlet" is available here as of today.

Our editor, Charity Bishop, has recently converted Femnista from an ezine to a more blog-like format that allows readers to interact with the authors.  I think it's a great move, as I love discussing articles with the other authors.  I hope you will too.
