Positioning Feminism

Cover of Positioning Feminism

When I survey the issues Artlink has published over the years, I’m struck by the way they pose questions, leave gaps for the reader, invite a sense that there’s much more to be said, imaged, discussed and dreamed. I’m struck by the fact that they’re still pertinent. Ahead of their time.
