In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8, we’ve dedicated this issue to exploring what it means to be a feminist today. Don’t miss the thoughtful piece by Antonia Zerbisias—who co-created the
hashtag #BeenRaped Never Reported— on feminism’s online renaissance (page 128)
and Clara Young’s essay on why feminism is suddenly trendy (page 70). If there’s any doubt in your mind that women continue to face unimaginable cruelties and profound injustices, read Susan McClelland’s piece on Reyhaneh Jabbari (page 234). This Iranian woman was hanged for murdering a man whom she accused of attempting to rape her. McClelland presents excerpts from some of the letters Jabbari wrote from prison
before her death.
