GUTS is a new online feminist magazine. Topics from the first two issues include Canadian feminist documentary filmmaking; feminist strategies for commemorating gender-based violence; "postfeminist" parliamentary political discourse; Canadian novelist Sheila Heti's genre-bender on women's relationships, How Should A Person Be?; women's paid and unpaid labour; institutionalized gender inequality in organized sport; Indigenous women, decolonization, and institutionalized racism. There's also a blog.

Thanks for this post - I'd never have heard of GUTS otherwise. Just flipped through "How Should A Person Be?" on amazon and it's pretty charming. Off to read the Chelsea Vowel article.

Thanks! I wouldn't have known of this either. Let's hope it gets both traction and support.

GUTS? Oh why such a name?

Of course it has my complete support, but I think the name unfortunate.

Interesting response to the name... Mine was different, it conjured the idea "she has guts" and also gettkngbinto the meaty discussion... The "guts" of feminist issues.

I had a negative response to the name Guts at first too, but then I thought of it like chapps' response. It's growing on me!

I never would have heard of it either except I was searching for feminist Canadian writing on class issues and it came up. I hope it gains traction too--I like its sense of vigour and urgency.

I see the name as sort of poke in the eye to "BUST" and an alternative to "balls" as a non-gendered expression for bravery, so I salute it!
