  1. I think this turned out to be a fantastic issue! Thanks again for the chance to contribute!


  2. Yay for the latest issue of Femnista! =) I never got around to commenting by email but the newest issue looks fantastic and the literary women featured are quite a variety! Fantastic job Charity =)

  3. Yay! So glad the day has finally arrived for the newest release of “Femnista.” As usual, I haven’t read it cover-to-cover yet but there is some great stuff in this issue! I’ve loved what I’ve read thus far.

    In particular, it was great to read about “Ruth” (Elizabeth Gaskell’s heroine) because she is such an unfamiliar one.

    Thank you, Charity for putting this all together. =)
