Sat 24 Oct - Typical Girls Magazine: Jamila Kenneally

The women behind the new Brighton-based magazine Typical Girls share their work and reflect on how young women interact with the media in 2015 as both producer and consumer. Typical Girls take their moniker from the Slits, and discuss ways to challenge homogeneity.

What does it mean to be a Typical Girl? The magazine website writes ...

There is no one way of answering that question. The Slits wrote of 'bringing out the new improved model' and that's what Typical Girls is all about. We want to celebrate women in all their variations. What makes Typical Girls unique is our aspiration towards diversity. Created as a platform for artists and writers to share their work; Typical Girls is a place to inspire and be inspired.
