Batya Weinbaum's feminist speculative fiction journal Femspec, Issue 10.2 is now available in full ass-kickery mode.

This current issue of the feminist fantastical journal, which includes peer-reviewed articles, poetry, reviews, and original prose, poses such questions as:

- Why does female masculinity exist in children's fantasy?

- Why are female characters in literature considered powerful or adequate only when they exhibit characteristics that are traditionally male?

- What effect does fairy-tale literature have on gender theories within different cultures?

Is it too late for us to change our thinking regarding gender, or are the rules, roles and meanings too much set in stone?

As a collective whole, issue 10.2 portrays how gender has significant contributions to the world and how we choose to live in it, how we identify ourselves and others, and how we may be able to break free from existing gender constraints, initiating a change in outdated and current mindsets or ways of thinking. »
