FEM Magazine strives to provide female identified artists, musicians and professionals with a solid platform of visibility. We strongly focus on up-and-coming artists, those struggling to have their voices heard, and professionals making strides and positive movements in their fields. Our stories, images, articles, etc. work towards strengthening and broadening the view of female empowerment through various methods of expression. Through our publication we hope to sustain a more diverse perspective of the ever evolving artist experience with a spotlight specifically on those that identify as female.

Body Work by Melissa Febos is an insightful master class in how we write about the experiences that have shaped us.
.
Febos’ honesty about her own writing and process, gives readers permission to explore, share and challenge their own thoughts and opinions about themselves, their work and their own stories.
.
How might we go about capturing on the page the relationships that have formed us? How do we write about our bodies, their desires and traumas? What does it mean for an author’s way of writing, or living, to be dismissed as “navel-gazing”—or else hailed as “so brave, so raw”? And to whom, in the end, do our most intimate stories belong?
.
“The process of writing for me is the great work of life. It is the nexus where everything that matters to me intersects. And when I’m doing that work, I am getting closer to everything I believe in, and enacting everything I believe in. Without sounding grandiose, I hope all of my work is the artifact of that truth.” -MF
.
“And I think when I’m encouraging people to write, I’m encouraging them to understand their own practice of that enactment, because it takes so much of the pressure off of publication or public perception or whatever it is that other people do with your work. If it means that much, if it is that central to everything that matters to you, it is worth doing regardless of the outcome, right?”-MF

Gemma Correll is a cartoonist, writer, illustrator and describes herself as an "all-around small person".
.
Her work has a strong narrative basis and she specialises in hand-drawn comics and character design.
.
“I enjoy figuring out how to communicate complex ideas in simple ways. My favorite kind of project is one that involves a bit of research, some reading and learning something new, then working out how to convey those ideas in an accessible and humorous manner. My work often tackles so-called 'serious' themes like mental illness and menstruation, usually drawn from my personal experiences, so I try to respectfully play with and even make light of them. It's my belief that gentle humor is a great way to break down stigmas.”

Born in Columbus, Georgia, and now based in the New York City area, Amy Sherald documents contemporary African American experience in the United States through arresting, intimate portraits. Sherald engages with the history of photography and portraiture, inviting viewers to participate in a more complex debate about accepted notions of race and representation, and to situate Black heritage centrally in American art.

Sherald received her MFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art and BA in painting from Clark-Atlanta University. Sherald was the first woman and first African-American to ever receive the grand prize in the 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C., she also received the 2017 Anonymous Was A Woman award and the 2019 Smithsonian Ingenuity Award. In 2018, Sherald was selected by First Lady Michelle Obama to paint her portrait as an official commission for the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.

COMING SOON

FEM Radio highlights unique and inspiring individuals who are redefining and shining new light on what it looks like to live, work and engage with cultures, societies and movements around them.  Why is it that we put ourselves into boxes? We often feel the societal pressure pick a lane and stick to it. But, what if we didn’t let those labels define us? What if we allowed ourselves to pursue all of our interests, to dive deep into all that inspires us? It is with these conversations that we will work towards strengthening and broadening the view of female empowerment with various professions and disciplines.
